Putting-Science-Into-Standards (PSIS) initiative & next workshop

Putting-Science-Into-Standards (PSIS) is joint initiative developed by CEN-CENELEC and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission. Its aim is to facilitate the identification of emerging science and technology areas that could benefit from standardization to enable innovation and promote industrial competitiveness.

PSIS will organise its next online workshop on 12-13 December 2023.
It will focus on Circular technologies for construction, and will bring stakeholders from research, scientific and standardization communities together with policy makers to exchange views on standardization needs for implementing circular technologies in the construction sector.

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • specify circular principles to facilitate the transition to a more sustainable circular economy in the construction ecosystem, covering design to de-construction and end-of-life scenarios in all stages of current and subsequent life cycles
  • reflect on the finding of the gap analysis developed by CEN/TC 350/SC 1 “Circular economy in the construction sector” 
  • collect additional stakeholders’ needs to complement the gap analysis and define future standardization priorities 
  • encourage participation of scientific community into future standardization activities
