Hydrogen technology will play a pivotal role in the future for a climate-friendly energy supply. At the political level, new paths are currently being charted both nationally and at the European level. Norms and standards ensure safety, acceptance and successful transfer and can thus make an important contribution to the effective establishment of new technologies. For small and medium-sized enterprises in particular, norms and standards are an important instrument for helping to shape the new regulations in the market. In our workshop, you will learn how you can play an active role in the standardisation process and what economic advantages norms and standards bring.

Please register by 3 November 2020 via the following link www.din-veranstaltungen.de and entering the code “mittelstand4”.

Together with our partners, DIN is organising the “NeueMärkte erschließen – mit Normen und Standards hoch hinaus” series of events for small and medium-sized enterprises (English: “Tapping into new markets – Moving upwards with norms and standards”). The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy and runs until 2022. The events provide SMEs with information on how they can participate in standardisation, what funding opportunities are available to them and provide an opportunity to talk to companies active in standardisation.

If you are interested in learning more about DIN and KOMMIT or are keen on participating in further events, then get in touch with Alexandra Horn ().
