ITU Webinar on Standards Education
30 April 2012, 14:00 – 16:00 Contact:
The event started with an overview of Aalborg University’s standardization curriculum and offered an opportunity to other ITU academia members to share their experiences on standardization courses.

The objective was to explore standardization curricula in different academic institutions.

As a follow up to this virtual event, a workshop on Standards Education, jointly organized by ITU and the Global ICT Standardisation Forum for India (GISFI), will take place on 8-9 October 2012, at Aalborg University, Denmark. On this occasion, the ITU academia members would be invited to share their curricula with the objective of developing an ITU repository of such material.
