Conférence européenne «SMEs and Standardization»

Dear CEN and CENELEC Members,
We invite you to participate in the European Conference «SMEs and Standardization», which will take place on 28 May 2013 at the SQUARE conference centre in Brussels.
The CEN and CENELEC communities have committed themselves to providing improved support and better access to standards for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), and to facilitating their involvement in standardization.
This one day European Conference will mark the conclusion of the SMEST 2 Project, supported by the European Commission and EFTA, which has been preparing an SME Standardization Toolkit. This toolkit has been developed for the standardization community and for business associations to facilitate the involvement of SMEs in standardization activities, and access to the results. The SME Standardization Toolkit (SMEST) is available on the CEN-CENELEC website.
This conference is aimed at:

  • Leaders of small and medium-sized enterprises and organisations representing SMEs;
  • Trade Associations, Chambers of Commerce, Enterprise Europe Network, other entrepreneurs' organisations and networks;
  • National government departments and bodies, local and regional governments, regulatory bodies;
  • Representatives of European institutions and bodies;
  • Representatives of academia, research and the university sector;
  • European and national standards organisations;
  • Any other interested parties.

The conference programme is available on the CEN-CENELEC website.
Participation in the conference is free of charge, but places are limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
We therefore invite you to register online as soon as possible. Please note that new registrations will not be accepted after 22 May 2013. For those who cannot attend the conference in person, it will be possible to follow the proceedings via a live web stream.
We hope that you will attend this European Conference aimed at supporting SME stakeholders to benefit from European Standards.
Best regards,
