Focus topic: Metrology for Environment

A key challenge facing Europe is the need to ensure sustainable growth, while protecting the environment and safeguarding our quality of life. With a focus on metrological research to improve the quality of data and stimulate technological innovation, EURAMET's European Metrology Research Programmes launched calls in 2010, 2013 and 2016 for projects in Environment. For further insight see the interview with Andrea Merlone, Convenor of EURAMET's Task Group on 'Metrology for Environment', as well as the impact report and case studies on the Metrology for Environment 2010 projects. Overviews of all the EMRP projects can be found here.

27 case studies highlight impact from energy and environment projects

EMRP projects actively engage with user communities who will benefit from the research. Examples of the early impact of the first energy and environment projects are highlighted in the 2-page case studies. The short abstracts explain the challenge for metrology, the solution developed by the project and the uptake by industry.

Next meeting for standardisation and metrology communities

CEN-CENELEC and EURAMET will hold the 3rd STAIR EMPIR meeting on 15 December 2016. The standardisation and metrology communities are invited to discuss ideas for the 2017 EMPIR call on pre- and co-normative research projects and further collaboration.
