Standards Support Endowment 2020, Adobe logo.February 27, 2020 – Berlin, Germany. As part of its ongoing commitment to the development and adoption of ISO-standardized PDF technology, Adobe, a Partner member of the PDF Association, has announced its PDF Standards Support Endowment program for 2020.

Over the course of the year the Standards Support Endowment will allow the PDF Association to maintain an accelerated tempo of operations including increased support for standards development, including a new PDF subset specification targeting repurposing of PDF content.

"Although the PDF Association already serves as the focal point for the PDF technology community, our endowment will enable them to increase their focus on the development of PDF itself," said Leonard Rosenthol, Adobe’s Senior Principal Architect for PDF and a member of the PDF Association board. “Over a decade ago, Adobe turned PDF over to the ISO to enable the community to drive its future and with the PDF Association’s newly expanded scope we believe that PDF will be able to address an even wider spectrum of applications”.

"Since the PDF/A Competence Center became the PDF Association back in 2011 the PDF Association has constantly expanded our involvement in standards development," said Matt Kuznicki, PDF Association chairman. "Adobe's endowment is a chance for the organization to take our standards development work to the next level, attracting more members to drive and sustain awareness and adoption of ISO-standardized PDF technology."

The Adobe Standards Support Endowment in 2020 will be 149 000 Euros. All endowed activities are overseen by the PDF Association's Board of Directors.
