The PICASSO project is organizing a policy webinar on “Standardization and its impact on EU-US ICT collaboration”, planned to be held on the 29th of September 2017 (03.00 p.m. UTC).  The webinar will discuss and refine policy recommendations designed to improve EU/US ICT-orientated collaborations – specifically in three technological domains: 5G networks; Big Data; and the Internet of Things/Cyber-physical systems (IoT/CPS).

The focus is on the implications of fragmentation of standard setting processes around the three technological domains, taking into account the different approaches towards interoperability and standardization being taken in the USA and in Europe and the risks likely to affect the global market opportunities for ICTs in the two different regional landscapes.

The participatory and interactive webinar will validate initial conclusions based on a policy briefing on standardization and its impact on EU/US ICT Policy collaboration, prepared by the PICASSO ICT Policy Expert Group, which is available for download here.
