ASTM International launches a new program for strengthening emerging technologies -

Global standards organisation ASTM International has launched ASTM Xcellerate -- a program focused on strengthening the world’s emerging technology from research to standards. The ASTM Xcellerate program builds on ASTM’s globally recognised standards development process to provide the speed, and agility new technologies need to survive and thrive.

Intending to accelerate progress across all emerging technologies, ASTM Xcellerate has a scope focused on: empowering broader global collaboration by harmonising the needs of international research communities and embedding standards at the very start of the emerging technology process; accelerating commercialisation and reducing costs by supporting critical R&D, avoiding duplication of work, and minimising wasted resources; and bridging the gap between research and full-scale operation by connecting industry and key stakeholders with relevance built-in.

ASTM Xcellerate is built around four key pillars designed to meet the needs of industry, research organisations, regulators, academia, and governments as they explore the benefits standards can bring to emerging technologies around the world. The four pillars include: Centers of Excellence; Technical Experts; Market Insight; and Advisory Services.

ASTM International also launched a new website to serve as a hub for all ASTM Xcellerate activities. To learn more about ASTM Xcellerate, including programs, events, news and insights, and ways to get involved, visit
