Dr. Tineke M. Egyedi works as a senior researcher on standardisation issues at the ICT department of the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management ate the Delft University of Technology. She is currently rounding off two research projects of the Next Generation Infrastructures program about the tension between standards and infrastructure flexibility, and on the rise of Inverse Infrastructures.
Among her main research interests are standards and the environment, and the ‘dynamics of standards’ on which she co-edited a book in 2008. The latter theme includes problems of standards change and of competing standards. More recent, she finalised a simulation exercise called ‘Setting Standards’ together with United Knowledge. This exercise aims to provide people from industry, novice standardizers, policy makers and university students hands-on experience with standards committee work, and is currently used to train US government officials and Chinese standardization officials.
Tineke Egyedi has collaborated in national and US science foundation projects as well as many European projects. She has done policy studies for Dutch ministries; worked as a consultant for national and international companies and standards bodies; and worked as researcher for the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, the University of Maastricht and the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands.
She has organized and chaired several European and international conferences, program committees, sessions and conference tracks. She has published widely. From 2008- 2010 she was (vice-)chair of the International Cooperation for Education about Standardization (ICES). She was nominated for Ada Lovelace Day 2010. Since 2005 she is president of the European Academy for Standardization (EURAS).
