The numerous achievements outlined in the 2017 report and the main highlights testify of the motion that has been set towards a deep transformation of European Standardization to serve the evolving market and technological needs.
European Standardization has been an effective contributor to achieving some of Europe’s economic and societal objectives, at a time when our economy is slowly recovering from the crisis. CEN and CENELEC have contributed directly to many of the priorities under Europe 2020 strategy, amongst other related to jobs & growth, the Digital Single Market, the Internal Market, and the Energy Union and Climate. At the heart of this lie our key strategic plans on Digital Transformation, on Innovation, and on standardization of Services, under which much progress was achieved in 2017.
Happy reading !
