Project proposals addressing standards and standardization are more likely to be considered for funding.

NSBs/NCs will receive a growing number of enquiries from researchers requesting knowledge about standards and standardization, and NSBs/NCs can actively participate in research projects.

These pages for NSBs/NCs aim to inspire and guide you, and provide you with tools to help you participate in research projects:

More detailed information on any of these topics can be found in the advice document ”How to Link Standardization with EU Research Projects - Advice for CEN and CENELEC Members”.

The primary focus is on Horizon 2020; but there are other research and funding programmes at national and European level where similar rules may apply.
