The WSC Academic Week 2010 took place on 5-9 July 2010 in Geneva.
The initiative was conceived as a way to promote the dialogue between academic institutions and the international standards community, to raise awareness and to foster cooperation and possible joint initiatives.
It was attended by more than 100 participants from over 30 countries, primarily representatives of national standards bodies (NSBs), standards developing organizations (SDOs), university professors and other academics. Invited speakers from industry and international organizations completed the picture.
In addition, about 75 persons were able to access the conference remotely (the conference was web cast using the webinar function of the Citrix software used by ISO/CS).
