Who benefits

The offer is aimed at young professionals from IEC National Committees, who should meet the following criteria to apply:

  • Completed technical, natural science or business studies
  • Work in a company or organization
  • Have experience in standardization or conformity assessment
  • Be interested in developing a community for new standardizers
  • Good knowledge of English
  • Age between 20 to approx. 35 years
  • Participation in a past IEC YP program is a plus but not a must

All young professionals who are eager to expand the current program of their NCs for young professionals are invited to apply for this unique opportunity.

Structure and objectives

During the workshop, the various programs of the Next Generation DKE portfolio will be presented and discussed. This includes activities and programs to facilitate the entry into standardization for young standardizers. Some examples are a standardization regulars' table, a mentoring program, and a thesis funding program. In addition, the members of the Next Generation DKE will explain how they created the current community and what opportunities they have to build a valuable network with experienced experts that will accompany them throughout their careers.

At the same time, we would like to ask the participants to present their NCs' activities for young professionals. This should be communicated with a short project outline to the organizing team directly during registration, so that a presentation can be included in the agenda. If such national activities do not yet exist, participation is of course still possible.

In the further course of the workshop, the participants will outline and develop their own new projects. In summary, this should result in a portfolio of concepts that can be implemented in the short to medium term and which can be easily adapted by YPs to expand the program of their NCs. The results will be made available to all participating NCs and can expand and enrich the programs for young professionals.

In addition to the individual workshop sessions, there will be an exciting program with various activities and excursions.

The workshop not only aims at jointly developing new concepts for an easier entry into standardization, but also provides for extensive networking among young professionals.

During guided tours, group activities in Frankfurt and joint dinners, participants will get to know each other as well as the Next Generation DKE and the city of Frankfurt am Main.

We are looking forward to getting to know you!
