Know-how: Developing the right skills
Taking into account the disparities in the ability of developing countries, relative to developed ones, to access, implement and influence international ITU-T standards, one of the core areas of the BSG
programme is geared towards assisting developing countries in acquiring the right skills and capabilities for international standards-making. This page introduces our e-learning courses and primers, and provides information about our hands-on interactive training sessions and related events. These are intended to help delegates from developing countries become familiar with how ITU-T Study Groups work and how to navigate the standards development process in order to reach their standardization objectives.
BSG Hands-on Sessions
Hands-on BSG roleplay sessions for ITU-T Study Groups have been held since January 2016 in Geneva in conjunction with parent Study Group meetings.
There have also been tailored on-site sessions organized in Tunisia, Korea (Rep.of) and India.
