The UNE 2020 Awards were given out at the meeting of chairpersons and secretaries of CTNs

24/06/2020

The Spanish Association for Standardisation, UNE, has held its annual meeting of chairpersons and secretaries of Technical Committees for Standardisation (CTNs), which took place online this year. In the event, the Institution awarded its UNE Awards in its 2020 edition, which recognise the outstanding contribution of individuals and organisations to standardisation.

More than 200 chairpersons and secretaries of CTNs participated in the session. These events strengthen the multi-sectorial collaborative environment represented by UNE, strengthening the associative model as an effective guarantee of response to the needs of Spanish companies and public administrations.

Among the topics covered, the annual session addressed the contribution of the Association in the current crisis, the digital transformation of standardisation and the evolution to a sustainable model for the functioning of CTNs.

The event was attended by the Chairman and Managing Director of UNE, Carlos Esteban and Javier García, respectively, among others.
