The Rolling Plan for ICT standardisation provides a unique bridge between EU policies and standardisation activities in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT). This allows for increased convergence of standardisation makers’ efforts towards achieving EU policy goals. This document is the result of an annual dialogue involving a wide-range of interested parties as represented by the multi-stakeholder platform on ICT standardisation. The Rolling Plan focuses on actions that can support EU policies and does not claim to be as complete as the work programmes of the various standardisation bodies.
The Rolling Plan 2019 identifies 170 actions grouped into four thematic areas: key enablers and security, societal challenges, innovation for the single market and sustainable growth.
The Rolling Plan is a living document. In the 2019 edition, four new chapters were added. “Artificial intelligence” and the “European Global Navigation Satellite System (EGNSS)” have been added to the “ Key enablers and security” chapter and “Water management Digitisation” and “Single European Sky” to the “Sustainable growth” chapter.
