EC’s Standardisation Booster recruits standardisation experts in Artificial Intelligence

Why is AI important for you? We might not realise it, but AI plays a key role in our daily lives, from filtering spam mail to suggesting a new song for us, to finding us the quickest route to where we’re going.

The EU’s approach to artificial intelligence centers on excellence and trust, aiming to build trustworthy artificial intelligence that puts people first.

The EC’s newly launched Standardisation Booster ( provides consultancy services to support EC-funded projects in understanding and using standards more effectively and guiding them on how to contribute to the creation or revision of standards through TWGs or TCs.

With the first draft of the Standardisation Request from the European Commission published at the beginning of June, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the urgencies that the Booster addresses. Through close collaboration with the European Standardisation Organisations, the Booster is running an open call to recruit standardisation experts in the area to deliver these consultancy services.

The Booster is in particular interested in recruiting members of various related ETSI Groups such as the Industry Specification Group (ISG) Securing Artificial Intelligence the OGC AI. Input from these groups will be essential in ensuring interaction with and input from EC-funded projects is appropriate and aligned with the needs of standardisation activities and urgencies within ETSI and other standardisation organisations.

In delivering the consultancy services, experts are expected to:

  • Coach standardisation practices and procedures
  • Specify current state-of-the-art standards
  • Identify areas for new standards / revised standards
  • Advise on possible paths for open standards
  • Pinpoint optimal standardisation workflows and timelines

The first services will commence in September 2022. Each consultancy service delivered can last for up to 4 months with 2 Effective Working Days of input expected from the expert who will work directly with the applicant project. Each service delivered by the expert will be remunerated at €800. A dedicated support platform and training materials will be provided by to support the delivery of services.
