SIPE-RTD: An environmental Standards Information Portal for Europe

The SIPE-RTD Web Portal serves as a knowledge brokerage tool, linking EC Policies to European Standards related to (monitoring of) the environment, as well as to EU funded RTD results potentially in support of the development and implementation of such Standards. The SIPE-RTD Web Portal operates as a ‘switch board’, linking related information that is available in the different communities (Standards, Policy and Research) in a thematic way.

Relevant Policies and Standards (CEN), as well as information on research Projects and their results, were uploaded. The table shows an overview of the number of items that relate to each of the four environmental compartments (status April 2014).
