When Standards Support Policies: the case of IOT and the digitization of industry

A policy session in the scope of the ETSI IoT/M2M week

Digitization of industry, ICT standards priorities, Joint Initiative on standardization: EU policy makers are laying out ambitious plans for the (digital) single market and Europe competitiveness in the global digital economy. These plans address directly the question of standardization and assign to it a key role in supporting policy objective
