Opportunity to participate in a Standards Development Program (NEXTgen)

Applications now open for Standards Australia’s NEXTgen Contributors Program which selects emerging industry and technical experts and provides them with an exciting opportunity to become involved in the national and international standardisation processes supporting Australian industry and government.

Do you know any emerging experts in your industry? Standards Australia are now accepting applications for the 2019/20 NEXTgen Contributors Program. The program provides in-depth training on developing standards and includes the opportunity to observe committees in action. The program runs from August 2019 to May 2020.

Through the program, participants will access training and gain direct exposure to the standards development process and context. They will attend and participate in webinars, meetings, and professional development activities.

The goal of the program is to support the future of standards development through investing in the next generation of standards experts. Program participants gain the necessary skills to further increase their involvement in standardisation and contribute to the development of important standards in their field.
