Standards are an essential part of the telecoms ecosystem, but finding the time and budget to understand and engage with the myriad standards bodies and their processes is tough.
The UKTIN Standards Working Group is designed to support SMEs in more effectively interacting with the standards process and having their IP adopted.
We are looking to recruit a cohort of SMEs with relevant IP who are keen to take a more proactive approach when it comes to standards to participate in seven interactive and collaborative workshops where the agenda is driven by your needs and priorities. Replicating models that have worked successfully elsewhere in the telecoms sector, we will work with you to agree common positions that can be used to influence and lobby standards bodies more effectively.
In addition, by becoming part of our SME cohort you get:
- Access to the UKTIN Standards Champion and Standards Working Group, offering personalised support and guidance based on their extensive experience managing standards.
- Your viewpoints and perspectives represented at key standards body meetings by our Standards Champion.
- Potential funding to attend some standards body meetings yourself.
- All with the aim of supporting you to have your IP accepted by standards bodies.
Sign up to our initial workshop on the 12 December where you’ll have a chance to meet Nick Johnson, Head of UKTIN, the UKTIN Standards Champion and UKTIN Standards Working Group Chair. You’ll hear more about what being part of the cohort entails, what you can expect to get out of it, and help shape the broader workshop programme.
Spaces are limited, so register your interest in attending our inaugural workshop here.
