Innovation & Entrepreneurship: Standards

This guide covers recommended resources available at the NUS Libraries on all matters pertaining to enterprise, entrepreneurship, innovation and start-ups.


Innovations in the form of new products and processes have significant impact on the society and economy. Standards play an essential role in the development, diffusion and adoption of such innovations by establishing a common language, defining key parameters such as safety and performance, providing frameworks and guidelines to facilitate the journey from ideas to commercialisation and lastly, serving as the springboard for future innovations to happen more rapidly.
