Today, SBS launched the first edition of Meeting Standards, a campaign that aims to raise awareness among European SMEs and SME organisations about the importance of standardisation and getting involved in the standards writing process. A series of activities will be held in the framework of Meeting Standards until 21 November 2023.
The campaign started today with a workshop "Setting the Standards for the Single Market: How to include SMEs" which was held in the framework of the SME Assembly in Bilbao and hosted in conjunction with the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the EU. On this occasion, Small Business Standards released its new brochure dedicated to the 30 Years of the Single Market.
The campaign will close with a conference entitled "SMEs and smart manufacturing – Standards as accelerators of industry change" on 21 November. This conference, moderated by Jenny Baker, will focus on the opportunities and challenges smart manufacturing brings to SMEs and discuss the role of standards in the digitalisation of manufacturing and the adoption of new manufacturing technologies.
But before that, join us for the next activities on www.meetingstandards.eu!
