ADAPT partners with HSBooster to deliver Standardisation Consultancy Services across Europe

18 July 2022

The SFI ADAPT Centre at Dublin City University is now a partner in the HSBooster project, a new service for Horizon Europe and Horizon 2020 projects. EU funded Research and Innovation projects will now be able to receive consultancy services delivered by standardisation experts. The experts will offer direct guidance and support to ensure the project chooses the right strategic approach and contributes efficiently to the standardisation process. These services are provided as part of the European Commissions’ Booster services. 

Standards are considered the foundations of the EU Single Market and are a vital resource to achieve competitiveness on a global scale. They can support companies and manufacturers to ensure interoperability of products and services as well as cutting down on costs and improving safety. 

Speaking about the collaboration, Professor Ray Walshe, senior researcher at the ADAPT Centre at DCU said: “The EC has recognised the value in supporting funded Research and Innovation projects to help valorise their outputs. The project provides “Standardisation-as-a-Service” providing scaling, globalisation and quality assurance through standards.”

The first Open Call for Research and Innovation projects has now been officially released with five calls organised up to 2024. Each call will focus on a different topic related to the standardisation urgencies as set out by the EU. The delivery of these services is set to start from September 2022.
