 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'This Action will promote research collaboration and engagement between research and policy in relation to Information Technology standardisation in China & Europe. The People’s Republic of China has recently begun to be remarkably active in many areas of ICT interoperability standards. This raises important issues for China about standardisation processes and technology promotion policy. Their outcome will have important consequences for the European economy and global ICT market. They are flagged as of particular interest to the FP7 Information Society Technologies programme. This project brings together the leading European and Chinese centres for research into ICT Interoperability Standards for a comparative examination of ICT standardisation processes and associated policies between EU and China. It will develop a knowledge network of top researchers in the field in Europe, China and beyond. It will examine the new ICT standardisation activity emerging in China, apparently linked to its goals to promote indigenous technology, and compare these emerging standardisation processes with the more established approaches that have evolved at a European level. Three strategic studies will address a selected sample of areas flagged by IST as bearing critically on European technology and industrial strategy. They will examine the standardisation approach adopted; the strategies of public policy, technical and industrial players; the likely implementation/uptake of standards and their consequences for innovation and markets. In particular: will the outcomes be open standards and alignment between regional economies or competitive standards processes leading to so-called “standards wars” or the fragmentation of global markets. Attention will be paid to social learning by standardisation bodies, industry and policy actors. Findings will be discussed with Chinese & European standards bodies and policy communities, who will assist in pulling out the policy implications.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

By bringing technology standards of Europe and China closer to each other, the doors of trade and cooperation in the sector will open wide in both continents.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

China has always been a formidable player in information and communication technologies (ICTs). Lately the country has become remarkably active in a number of areas of ICT interoperability standards, and is looking to the EU for cooperation in this field. Because these standards could have important consequences for the global ICT market and for the European economy, the EU also wants to work with China in this area.

The 'China EU information technology standards research partnership' (China EU standards) project is fostering research collaboration and engagement between research and policy in relation to ICT standardisation in China and Europe. The project is bringing together leading European and Chinese centres for research into ICT interoperability standards to examine standardisation processes and associated policies between EU and China. It has developed a knowledge network of leading players in the field, within Europe, China and beyond. The project looks at new technology in China and its standards, comparing it with those of the EU.

Currently, the project team is investigating standards and formats related to third- and fourth-generation mobile telephony, audiovisual technology and mobile broadcasting. It is looking into the implementation and adoption of these standards, including their impact on innovation and markets. The team is also studying how open these standards will be, the alignment between regional economies, competition leading to 'standards wars', and fragmentation of global markets.

China has shown its commitment to coordinating the implementation of selected standards and building related large-scale IT infrastructures. This coincides with increasing globalisation of standardisation and associated innovation, calling into question simple 'indigenous' technologies, i.e. those that work only on national or regional standards.

The findings of this project so far have been discussed with Chinese and European standards bodies and policy communities. These findings have been refined and disseminated through two high-level policy workshops organised in Beijing, China and Brussels, Belgium. If there is more compatibility between the standards and formats of China and Europe, ICT collaboration between them will most likely bloom, and so will trade in this respect. The project is set to overcome a major technological challenge that has important bearing upon the global economy in the 21st century.
