2014 - May - 21

"If you are young, you live in a developing country and you have a story to tell about standards and a sustainable energy future, then you have the profile to participate in the ISO/DIN essay contest!”

The International Organization for Standardization - ISO has just opened the 2014 edition of its contest for young professionals in developing countries.

The contest is sponsored by the German Institute for Standardization - DIN, and aims to challenge and provide opportunities to young ‘professionals’ from developing countries and economies in transition.

Entrants are expected to submit an essay and a video that would provide their answer to the topic “Sustainable energy future – How can standards help meet the challenge?”, by July 27th 2014.

The winner can look forward to spending a week in Berlin for an attachment at DIN to be exposed to the functions and standards management practices of the successful standards organization. The winner will also spend a few days at ISO Central Secretariat in Geneva Switzerland.
