Our Strategic Lines

The Strategic Guidelines 2021-2024 have solid roots, on which governance has defined the reference points of standardisation, i.e. what we want UNI to become (vision) and how we intend to get there (mission).

In the process of gradual fine-tuning (which always kept the model of the ISO 2030 Strategy and the objectives of the UN 2030 Agenda as a reference), numerous stakeholders were involved, such as UNI people, the Federated Bodies, the Representative Members, the Central Technical Commission and the Standardisation Study Centre

Strategic Lines 2021-2024 (ITA)


To be the place of normative reference
, to identify, disseminate and support the application of the best consensual solutions in the cultural, social, economic and technological domains of interest, for the benefit of the individual and the community.

To do this through an open system of knowledge transfer and promotion of the values of social responsibility and protection of fundamental human rights, in order to constitute over time a recognised centre of expertise and a dialoguing, inclusive and multifaceted social body.
