Winner of the DIN/ISO Essay Contest 2016 visits DIN
DIN hosted Ms Majd Shatnawi of the Jordanian Standards Institute (JSMSO) from 3-7 July.
Ms Shatnawi is the winner of the DIN/ISO Essay Contest 2016. Her essay, titled “International Standards and Developing Jordan’s Urban Environment” prevailed over the submissions of other applicants from the field of international standardization. The biennial DIN/ISO Essay Contest, conducted by ISO and financed by DIN, encourages young standardizers to present the role of standardization in their country through pre-specified topics and issues.
The winner is awarded 1000 Swiss francs as well as an invitation to the ISO Central Secretariat in Geneva and a week-long residence at DIN. During her stay in Berlin, the young Jordanian gained an insight into the diverse tasks of standardization and wide range of topics at DIN. It was a great pleasure to have Ms Shatnawi with us.
