Our world is changing fast. Observers increasingly say we are on the edge of a Fourth Industrial Revolution, which will bring together digital,biological and physical technologies in new and powerful combinations. What is happening in the world of international standards to support this?
I’d like to invite you to a unique roundtable opportunity to discuss how digital international standards can boost innovation, improve safety and remove barriers to trade.
For the first time ever in New Zealand, we have both the Presidents and General Secretaries of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)and International Electro technical Commission (IEC) available for selected meetings. Please join us, your peers and these global experts to discuss key developments in international standards.
The roundtable will be facilitated, and here are some of the key points we expect to cover:
*What role are international standards playing in the digital economy?
*How can international standards help with the development of digital technologies such as information security, blockchain, IoT, AI, smart cities, ageing societies and active assisted living?
* How can the ISO, IEC, government agencies and industry work together so that we can effectively respond to these trends?
We hope you can make it and join the conversation. Please RSVP early by replying to Carmen Mak <Carmen.Mak@mbie.govt.nz>, as we have limited seats available.
This event coincides with the Pacific Area Standards Congress (PASC)-ISOworkshop on ‘Standards and Regulatory Stewardship’ and the 42nd PASC meeting on 8-9 April in Wellington. Click here to read more and register for the workshop.
