The Standards Watch of StandICT.eu monitors the status of ICT standards at international level, starting from the five priority areas of the Digital Single Market: 5G communications,cloud computing,cybersecurity,data technology, and IoT – Internet of Things.

In particular, special attention is given to the rapidly evolving ICT topics of: Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, IoT. Gradually, the Standards Watch will be expanded to other ICT domains and topics, with the aim of better identifying gaps, needs & opportunities and consequently stimulating European Experts to pursue the openings granted by the StandICT.eu initiative.
