EURAS' View: Building a research community

Research output: Chapter/Conference proceedingConference proceedingProfessional


Korea is the fourth country in the world to establish a national community for standardisation research. At the European level, EURAS is such a community. EURAS and the communities in Bulgaria, Greece and the Netherlands have a rather informal structure. The creation of academic communities is a natural step of the development of standardisation as a scientific discipline. A possible emphasis for the Society for Standards and Standardization could be to stimulate research by (1) meeting each other, (2) providing feed-back to each other, (3) inclusion of standardisation in national research policies, (4) contacts with the international research community, and (5) contacts with other national stakeholders: industry, government, and standards bodies. SSS can also relate standardisation research to standardisation education. KATS and KSA are advised to also establish a community of standardisation practitioners in parallel, taking the benchmark of IFAN members in other countries. This would further strengthen the Korean position in standardisation.
