On 13th November 2019, at the occasion of the European conference ‘Boosting innovation through standards’, CEN and CENELEC launched the Standards + Innovation Awards acknowledging the important contribution of research and innovation to standardization and celebrating the contributions of researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs to standardization.

Nominations for these awards were received from the CEN and CENELEC national members. All nominations are available from this overview of nominees.

A first annual award was given to a European Research/innovation project (H2020) which has successfully contributed to standardization.
