Integration of standardization into different levels of technology education has surfaced as a critical issue for educational practitioners and policy makers at national and regional (APEC, EU) level. In this paper, we describe and analyze empirical data collected from 118 educational experiences and practices about technology standards and standardization in 21 countries of a regional variety. Specifically, this research examines standardization education programs these countries have implemented, and explores suggestive indications for the design and development of an educational policy for standardization. Online surveys, offline interviews, face-to-face meetings and case studies have been used to determine the way these standardization education programs are segmented and implemented in different contexts. The findings are consolidated into a framework for standardization education. The framework presents an applicable combination of target groups (who), appropriate learning objectives (why), probable program operators (where), prospective contents modules (what), and preferred teaching methods (how). This framework may contribute to planning and implementing more inclusive standardization education programs. © 2010 The Author(s). Source

This paper addresses how countries placed a different intellectual focus on the management of technology and innovation (MOT) research in ten leading MOT specialty journals published in 20002009. The result confirms that each country has quite diverse relative research interests and performances in MOT domains. Among the top seven leading countries in MOT research, the US has a comparative advantage in project management (PJM); the UK has one in social change (SCH); and Spain has one in intellectual property (IPR). The other four countries show much more dynamic observations. Netherlands has clearly a comparative advantage in technology policy (TPO), while Taiwan has one in technology analysis and forecast (TAF), Germany in entrepreneurship (ENT), and Italy in technology transfer and commercialization (TTC). This paper contributes to the MOT community by providing much clearer evidence of how countries become differently positioned in the global MOT arena. These empirical findings demonstrate significant differences in the comparative competitiveness of countries involved in MOT research that were little known earlier. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

The Republic of Korea is a forerunner in integrating the topic of standardization into engineering education at the academic level. This study investigates developments and evolutions in the planning and operating of the University Education Promotion on Standardization (UEPS) in Korea. This paper examines why the Korean government initiated the UEPS, how the UEPS has operated, and what the educational content of the UEPS program is. This study of the UEPS may serve as a benchmark of how to incorporate technical standards into science and technology education at both the national and individual university levels. Some implications and considerations for the future introduction of similar courses in other countries are discussed. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht. Source

This paper addresses the profiling of research papers on 'standardization and innovation'-exploring major topics and arguments in this field. Drawing on 528 papers retrieved from the database, Web of Science, we employed trend, factor, and clustering analyses to demonstrate that the standardization and innovation research has continuously grown from publication of 13 papers in 1995 to 68 papers in 2008; the majority of these papers have been published in the six subject group domains of management, economics, environment, chemistry, computer science, and telecommunications. Technology innovation management specialty journals are the most central sources favorable for these themes. We also present an exploratory taxonomy that offers nine topical clusters to demonstrate the contextual structures of standardization and innovation. The implications of our results for ongoing consistent policy and future research into standardization and innovation are discussed. © 2011 Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary. Source

This study concerns properties of nanoslag (NS) concrete cast with the alkali activator to enhance the hydraulic activity. The NS was produced by the cyclone segregation method to meet the fineness of 15,000 cm 2/g. Properties of fresh NS concrete was evaluated by a rise of the adiabatic temperature and the setting time. Simultaneously, a development of the strength and the chloride diffusivity for NS concrete was assessed. As a result, hardening of NS concrete was about 1 h fastened, due to an enhanced activity between NS and mixing water, which was ensured by a sharp increase in the adiabatic temperature at a very early age, compared to OPC concrete. NS concrete had a lower rate of chloride transport, when exposed to a salt solution, presumably due to a refinement of the pore structure: a significant decrease in the volume of the capillary pores was observed, which otherwise would indicate an equivalent level of chloride transport. From a survey on the environmental impact, it was clearly seen that the use of NS concrete would dramatically reduce the emission of CO 2 gas in the process of concrete materials, ranging about 70% reduction to Portland cement concrete. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
