DIN Deutsches Institut für Normung e. V.

DIN is a non-profit organization recognized as a national standards body representing German interests in European and international standardization activities. Today more than 85 % of this work takes place at European or international level. DIN currently holds 17 % of all secretariats at ISO and 28 % of all CEN secretariats. DIN prepares standards as services for the economy, state and community. Standardization is considered as a strategic instrument to support economy and the society in general. It reduces the need for legislation and supports convergence in technology whilst allowing for a wide range of local solutions if needed. DIN supports any R&D projects with the concept of R&D Phase Standardization, which covers any activity with the aim of early identification of standardization potential of products and services, establishment of standardization processes and assistance with public availability of the results of these processes. Because of this the sustainable transfer of knowledge and technology will be enhanced and accelerated in innovative fields.

Therefore task of DIN is to identify standardization potentials at an early stage of this research project and to analyze currently existing standards and standardization activities. Based on this a specific standardization strategy will be developed. In addition, the results of this process will be publicly available to support the dissemination of EASE-R3.

DIN participated in various European FP7 projects such as InTime (In time delivery in non-hierarchical manufacturing networks of machinery and equipment industry) and SustainValue (Sustainable value creation in manufacturing networks).
