Standardization the process of developing standards, is recognized by policy-makers as a useful tool for innovation competitiveness and growth. Standards perform fundamental economic functions and their relevance for ICT is acknowledged by firms, researchers and policy-makers. ICT standards play an essential role in achieving interoperability of new technologies and can bring significant benefits to both industry and consumers. They help ICT markets remain open and allow consumers the widest choice of products.
Standards activities can help bridging the gap between research and industrial development of products and services by facilitating the commercialization of research results.
