NSAI Education Support: Standards - part of the education puzzle

Education, Research and Innovation

NSAI Support for the Education Sector

As the Irish National Standards body, NSAI would like to ensure that exposure to Standards and Standardisation happens at an early stage, i.e. at the educational stage, rather than upon entering the workforce, so that individuals have the knowledge, skill and competence to search for, identify and use those Standards which are applicable to them in their areas of study and when they reach the workforce.

To this end the NSAI have embarked on a National programme of free guest lectures aimed at 3rd level staff and students around the country to advise them on how to search for and identify Standards, and the breadth of standards which apply in their respective fields. NSAI are committed to supporting the 3rd level institutes and libraries by providing access to the National Standards Database at a very competitive price in order to support these free guest lectures and the resulting raising of awareness in relation to Standards and Standardisation.

NSAI Support for Research and Innovation

NSAI regularly deals with people involved in research activities or in the workforce who have little or no knowledge of Standards and Standardisation, yet these people are the users and future authors of Standards. Such people come to NSAI for advice, sometimes at the last minute, after realising a standard may apply to their professional activities. In order to support your activities and ensure you have access to relevant information, the NSAI Standards Education and Promotion Team are available to discuss where Standards may be of benefit to you and your activities. We can show you how to identify the Standards you need to reference and deliver introductory talks to you and your staff.
