Sort of jingoistic!
Where are these "plenty of such programs and initiatives outside the EU too"?

You claim the lack of democratic control but the EU 27 vote on such stuff; there are vetos and factions with common interests.

EU citizens get to vote their MEPs and that demonstrates what kind of EU they want.
In terms of standardization, ISO is of course a great example, or maybe ITU.
Research: what about the international space station?
Apart from that, there are well-known organisations like UN, NATO, WTO, G8 and many others.

Countries have vetos. People don't. A referendum could be a much better way to come to a strategic decision on a key topic.
