The Living Standards Award is the most significant Austrian prize dedicated to standardization and innovation. It pays tribute to success stories on innovative solutions, ideas and future-oriented technologies with export potential. It also focuses on raising the visibility of success stories based on the application and development of standards.
The 2020 Living Standards Award is established by Austrian Standards International and shines a spotlight on five categories that demonstrate the importance of standards in all areas of everyday life: from innovative charging technology for smart life to clean groundwater for climate protection to the fight against electronic waste.
