During this event, ILNAS will give an update on the 2020-2030 national standardization strategy for the sectors identified, in this framework, as promising for the economy (Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), aerospace and construction), proposing a retrospective of ad hoc standardization developments carried out in 2022.

The University of Luxembourg will detail the progress of the joint ILNAS/University of Luxembourg-SnT research program: “Technical Standardization for Trustworthy ICT, Aerospace and Construction” (2021-2024).
