Welcome to the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP)

The science of measurement - metrology - is important for scientific research, industry and our everyday lives, as the demand for measurements with high accuracies and low uncertainties continues to increase.
The European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP) enables European metrology institutes, industrial organisations and academia to collaborate on joint research projects within specified fields.
These collaborative efforts will accelerate innovation in areas where shared resources and decision-making processes are desirable due to economic factors and the distribution of expertise across different countries and sectors.
The EMRP is implemented by EURAMET, organised by 23 National Metrology Institutes (NMIs), supported by the European Union and has a value of 400 M €. The preceding project iMERA-Plus (implementing Metrology in the European Research Area) had a value of 64.6 M €.
The European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) has been approved by the European Parliament and Council to follow on from the EMRP.
There is an increased focus within EMPIR on innovation activities to target the needs of industry and accelerate the uptake of research outputs.
