BELGRADE, October 15, 2019 - A series of events took place in Belgrade (Serbia) on October 11 as part of the Academic Cooperation Day of International Cooperation in the Field of Standardization between the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). Academic Cooperation Day is held annually and is organized by these organizations.
This year the event was held at the University of Belgrade and was organized by the staff of the Department of Quality Management and Standardization. The meeting was attended by representatives of international organizations, in particular, the World Trade Organization (WTO), the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the British Standards Institute (BSI).
The event was attended by the adviser to the rector of the Academy of Rosstandart (ASMS) Nikita Kuprikov. Working meetings were held with representatives of the IEC Academy, Belgrade University, Madrid Polytechnic University, the British Institute of Standards, during which issues of bilateral academic interaction at the level of educational organizations were discussed.
In a panel discussion, ISO President John Walter recalled the role of standardization: “Standard developers do not build walls - we build bridges. Working together, educating the world about the value of standards for present and future generations, we will all help build the future”.
As Nikita Kuprikov noted, “the importance of teaching standards for students studying in technical disciplines has long been recognized, but has not received enough attention in other areas of training. Future managers, lawyers, and those responsible for developing strategies and policies will benefit from the realization of the value of standardization”.
Following the meeting, it was decided to strengthen bilateral academic cooperation in the framework of international cooperation in the field of standardization.
