How can be ensured that digital devices are interoperable? How can developing countries upgrade their production and integrate into global value chains? How can technological transfer and the diffusion of new technologies be supported? How can consumers be protected from hazardous goods?

The answer to those questions lies in an effective and efficient quality infrastructure. This institutional framework contributes to product safety, consumer protection and free trade. The course is intended to give the students a broad overview concerning elements and actors of the quality infrastructure at national, European and international level. It unveils the interplay between governmental regulation, European and international standards, product certification, accreditation, metrology, and market surveillance. The course explores how the different elements build on each other creating an efficient and effective system that contributes to innovation, trade, sustainability, and economic development.

The course specifically highlights challenges and opportunities for quality infrastructure worldwide that come with digitalization. Topics related to cyber security, smart home, blockchain, but also privacy and data security are covered in the lectures and guest lectures.
