Are you passionate about standardization? If so, you'll want to contribute to writing good standards. But what characterizes a good standard?

In this year's DKE Young Professional Camp, we will focus on how to write a standard and what to consider along the way.

We will start by introducing you to the basics of requirements engineering and how they apply to standardization. Along the way, we also address typical problems that you may encounter when working with standards and how to deal with those problems.

In interactive and creative workshop sessions, you will apply your newly acquired knowledge to concrete standards and develop new ideas on how to promote good standards techniques.

Additionally, participants of the DKE Young Professionals Camp, will be introduced to the various activities and programs to facilitate the entry into standardization for young standardizers. Some examples are a standardization regulars' table, a mentoring program, and the IEC Dream Guide. Members of the Next Generation DKE will explain how they created the current community and what opportunities they have to build a valuable network with experienced experts that will accompany them throughout their careers
