Integrated Approach

The networking of research, development, innovation and standardization is based on an integrated approach:

Research, development, innovation and standardization

Developing a proposal for a research project <-> Screening existing standards and assessing the need for standards
Drafting the project <-> Identifying where standardization can benefit the project
Defining how standardization is to be covered during the project and who will be the standardization partner
Performing the project <-> Identifying standardization potentials of project results
Cooperating with the standardization partner
Contributing to standardization

Protecting, disseminating and applying project results <-> Using standards and standardization as dissemination channels

Developing a proposal for a research project
  • Screening existing standards: avoids the use of resources for obtaining knowledge that already exists.
  • Identifying standards relevant to the research project
Drafting the project
  • Identifying where standardization can benefit the project,
  • Defining how standardization will be covered during the project, and
  • Deciding who will be the standardization partner(s).
Performing the project
  • Identifying standardization potential of project results,
  • Cooperating with the standardization partner, and
  • Contributing actively to standardization.
Protecting, disseminating and using project results
  • Standardization as a channel for disseminating the knowledge created.
  • Standardization prevents that research results are used for patenting by third parties.
