International Conference on Standardization and Innovation
Standardization and Innovation
Innovation is widely recognized as one of the essential drivers of successful business and a key contributor to a nation's productivity and economic and social development. Finding ways of fostering innovation is a central concern for both forward-thinking companies and governments. In many countries there is a strong focus on public funding of research and development and on intellectual property rights (IPR) as instruments of innovation policy and business strategy.
Whilst it is clear that economic and societal benefits from research can only be achieved through their successful transfer into innovative products and processes, this critical aspect – which is the one to which standardization contributes most – is often neglected.
