SIST introduces its young standardization ambassadors

SIST is proud to introduce their two young standardization ambassadors, Hana Knez and Erik Vladimir Simić. The two committed students of the Faculty of Electrotechnics in Ljubljana are aspiring to become successful engineers and are ready to engage with standards and standardization in their future endeavours.

Their primary responsibility is to represent and promote SIST in an eloquent way, with particular emphasis on reaching out to the younger demographic beyond the organization. Do you want to know more about their motivations for taking on this role? Let's see what they have to say...


Hana Knez: Although standardization in the modern world may seem mundane, its crucial role in bringing a product to the market is often overlooked. The items we purchase adhere to standards from production onwards. Standards go beyond mere regulations on paper; they serve as limits and guide redirections and established regulations. Inspired by the fascinating role standards play in our daily lives, I have chosen to become a young ambassador for standardization. My goal is to promote widespread respect and acknowledgment of standards among entrepreneurs and the youth. Standards truly make the world go round!


Erik Vladimir Simić: When I started studying at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, I had the opportunity to participate in the Autumn School of Standardization organized by SIST. After the school ended, I expressed a desire to collaborate with the institute, which then contacted me directly and introduced me to the Young Ambassador of Standardization programme. I accepted this opportunity as it allows me to gain insight into the institute's operations, establish connections for the future, and acquire new knowledge. For me, standards are the foundation on which the current and future generations must build the future and development. Standards are not just guidelines; they are crucial for ensuring quality, safety, and sustainability in our daily lives. Advocating for high standards enables us to create a better society and environment for future generations.

SIST is more than happy to see this programme come to life and to give two young people this opportunity to get a deeper insight into standardization and SIST’s work.
