DIN, German Institute for Standardization
German Institute for Standardization (DIN) is a non-profit organization recognized as a German National Standards body representing Germany in European and international standardization activities. DIN prepares standards as services for the economy, state and community. Standardization is considered as a strategic instrument to support economy and the society in general. It reduces the need for legislation and supports convergence in technology whilst allowing for a wide range of local solutions if needed. DIN supports any R&D projects with the concept of R&D Phase Standardization, which covers any activity with the aim of early identification of standardization potential of products and services, establishment of standardization processes and assistance with public availability of the results of these processes. Because of this the sustainable transfer of knowledge and technology will be enhanced and accelerated in innovative fields.
Role in the COROMA Project
The role of DIN is to support the identification of standardization potentials at an early stage of this research project and to analyse currently existing standards and standardization activities. Based on this, specific standardization strategies will be developed.
