About InDiCo Global

Driving Digital Policies and ICT Standards Worldwide
InDiCo-Global, a Horizon Europe Coordination and Support Action, builds bridges between technical communities and policy makers globally, on topics relating to Digital policies and ICT standardisation.

Powered by a strong consortium - ETSI, CEN, CENELEC, Trust-IT, Martel Innovate and COMMpla, InDiCo-Global aims to develop mutual understanding of policy, regulatory and technical approaches to ICT/digital technologies, enhance cooperation on ICT standards and alignment in policies and regulations, leading to a wider use of common standards for the benefit of European industry.

Building on the success of InDiCo, implemented by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), Indico Global broadens its horizons. Our focus extends beyond the European borders to a new set of targeted geographies and updated technological realms, aligning with European Union priorities. The project aims to foster awareness of the European Standardization System (ESS) and its contributions to ICT/Digital, advocating for global acceptance and interoperability.

Over its 36 months duration, InDiCo-Global will direct 40% of its €2.5 million budget to Capacity Building initiatives through a series of open calls for micro-projects focused on the targeted regions.
