What is EURAS?
EURAS, the European Academy for Standardisation e.V., was founded in Hamburg in 1993 by researchers from various academic fields (i.e. economics, engineering, social sciences, law, and information sciences). It is a registered society under German civil law, and a non-profit organization. The foundation of EURAS was prompted by a common desire to promote and achieve progress in the academic treatment of standardisation, involving the widest possible range of disciplines.
Objective: "EURAS' objective is to promote research, education and publication in the field of standardisation."
The society's activities focus on:
- promoting standardization research,
- a critical evaluation thereof in the interest of scientific education,
- improving opportunities to publish research results, and
- supporting the development and professionalization of standards education.
The EURAS Membership is available for researchers and other professionals in the field of standardisation in academic research and education. The EURAS Membership is free of charge and is continued automatically unless cancelled. When EURAS communication fails to rearch the e-mail address provided, the membership will also end.
EURAS offers a platform for exchanging information, collaboration and dissemination. It does so by organising annual EURAS conferences and publishing the conference proceedings, the EURAS Yearbook and other publications.
EURAS Members receive 10% discount on the conference fees when membership exists prior to the opening of the conference registration (e.g.1 May - Date may vary).
