ANTICSS – Anti-circumvention of Standards for better Market Surveillance

Final conference

The topic of manipulated testing results, or “circumvention” is still exposed to high attention of the public and media, not only for the emission of cars (“dieselgate”) but also with regard to other EU legislation. For this reason the project “ANTICSS – Anti-Circumvention of Standards for better market Surveillance” has received co-funding by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme from 2018-2021. To present and discuss with you the overall results of our research we kindly invite you to the final conference:
