Over its three-year lifespan, 2023 has sought to generate valuable recommendations and position statements that could offer significant insights for the European Commission policy setting. This has been mainly achieved through the synergistic and focused efforts of the EUOS (European Observatory on Standardisation), the EUOS Foresight Committee, and the External Advisory Group, which all consist of influential figures in the field of Standardisation. These entities substantially contributed to the development of 2023 by providing a thorough and all-encompassing perspective on emerging technology standards policies globally. In this context, the subsequent, non-exhaustive list, comprises key actionable recommendations that have been presented to the European Commission and Project Officers during the running of the project and in the final technical report.These recommendations address diverse themes within ICT Standardisation, stemming from various tailored events and issued reports under the project duration. The report delivers a set of recommended guidelines to the European Commission for different stakeholders to help identify which priority areas to focus future activity on. The list is divided into Recommendations towards H2020, HE and DEP, Recommendations to SDOs, Recommendations to Technology Domain Area, Recommendations to Policy Makers and funding Agencies, and Considerations on Open Standards
