European market needs for education in standardisation/standardisation-related competence


The European Commission (EC) has repeatedly pointed out the need to improve the education with regards to standardisation (EC COM (2011)311). This need was confirmed by the “Joint Initiative on Standardisation (JIS)” of the public and private partners in the European Standardisation System (EC COM (2016)358). In order to explore and promote standardisation as an element of formal, academic as well as vocational training, a comprehensive assessment of market demand is required. The aim of this European study is to identify “Job profiles” for which the present European employment market requests standardisation-related competences.
