In the UK, BSI’s university relationships are extensive and long-standing. We use leading university expertise to help inform and shape our standards development programmes, from sustainable development and digital manufacturing to connected and autonomous vehicles.
Over 1,000 academics are part of our standards-makers community, either as individual experts or representing over 120 UK higher education institutions. Through a range of activities, resources and materials, we work with universities to help raise student awareness of the benefits of standards to society and the economy, and to encourage and increase participation in standards-making.
Universities are also major clients of BSI products and services, including standards content subscriptions (BSOL). Academics, students and university staff use thousands of our standards on an annual basis.
