Innovation Economics

Standardization

Our competence profile covers the entire life cycle of standards, including their strategic significance.

With regard to the development and use of standards, we offer forward-looking courses in the field of strategic standardization and provide practical advice. A central concern is the use of standards to promote and disseminate innovations.

Numerous standards have been co-developed and often even initiated by ourselves.

Analyses of the benefits of standards for national and international clients, both for individual stakeholders and for entire national economies, round off our competence profile in this area.

The following overview gives examples of standards in new technical fields on a national/European level that we were involved in creating.

UNI/PdR ("Bio-based products - Sustainability criteria")

The chair of innovation economics of the Technische Universität Berlin, together with Unitelma Sapienza initiated a process of establishing a UNI/PdR (in Italian “Prassi di Riferimento”), under the operational direction of UNI. The draft of the PdR was launched on December 18, 2020 with the settlement meeting of the "Sustainability of Biobased Products" Table.

The PdR aims to develop a document that provides guidelines for assessing the most relevant aspects of the sustainability of biobased products from a life cycle perspective - for benchmarking, eco-design and sustainability qualification - also in relation to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030). The document, using the principles identified in UNI EN 16751 ("Bio-based products - Sustainability criteria"), aims to develop for each pillar of sustainability, a set of criteria and qualitative and quantitative indicators

RdR are documents that introduce technical prescriptions or sectorial application models of technical standards, elaborated on the basis of a rapid (maximum eight months from the approval of the request) sharing process restricted to the authors, verified the absence of standards or standard projects under study on the same subject; they constitute a type of national para-normative document that goes in the desired direction of transfer of innovation and preparation of development contexts for future standardization activities, providing a timely response to changing markets. It is part of the “Europeann standardisation delivelirables”, as provided for in Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012 (UNI/PdR 18:2016).

International

More than 1.200 organizations and experts from over 100 countries helped to formulate IWA 42 in only three months. As a result, ISO presented the guidelines for the first time at the World Climate Conference COP 27. They contain guiding principles and recommendations for a common global approach to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions and help companies to achieve their net-zero targets.
