At EURAMET, our European Metrology Research Programmes (EMRPEMPIR and the European Partnership on Metrology) have supported hundreds of measurement science research projects. However, it is essential that the scientific developments are communicated with stakeholders, industry contacts and the general public to boost industrial uptake of metrology research and support the development of new and improved products and services. This ensures that Europe’s measurement infrastructure is continuously developed and able to withstand challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

Metrology for Regulation Event 2023

On Monday, 23 October 2023, 9:00 - 12:30 CEST, WELMEC & EURAMET will be organising an online consultation event to collect & discuss metrology-related stakeholder needs in the area of regulation.

In addition to a plenary session with high-level speakers, parallel sessions will focus on Radiation Protection, Environment and Legal Metrology.

Open consultation on Metrology for Radiation Protection 2022

On 5 and 6 October 2022, EURAMET and the European Metrology Network for Radiation Protection are inviting to an online brokerage event for stakeholders to shape EURAMETs upcoming call: ‘Support for technological trends: EURAMET’s Work Programme on Metrology for Industry’.

European basic safety standards deal with the protection of humans and the environment from the dangers of exposure to ionizing radiation. However, the practical implementation of basic safety standard requirements brings with it some new challenges! Therefore, it is crucial to have an open discussion between the metrology communities and the relevant radiation protection stakeholders, to identify metrological needs in the context of radiation protection.

Open consultation on Metrology for Semiconductor Technologies 2022

With the European Chips Act the EU aims to strengthen its semiconductor ecosystem, increasing its resilience, ensuring supply and reducing external dependencies. Achieving this will require a thriving semiconductor sector in Europe, where the full value chain has the necessary tools, skills, and technological capabilities to meet its essential requirements.

These include the research, development, manufacturing, and packaging of advanced semiconductor devices, and the design and manufacturing of pioneering microprocessing equipment, as well as fit-for-purpose metrology for advanced nano- and microscale manufacturing.

Open consultation on Metrology for Smart Electricity Grids 2021

Smart electricity grids are becoming an increasingly central focus of European Union Green Deal objectives to secure a sustainable energy future. As flexible, decentralised yet interconnected electricity networks, smart grids hold the potential to increase the reliability and efficiency of electricity supplies, and to optimise our uptake of renewable energy resources.

EURAMET’s European Metrology Network for Smart Electricity Grids is working to support these very goals. To hear directly from their stakeholder community, the network is launching a series of workshops. By taking part in these sessions, stakeholders will be able to shape the network's strategic research agenda and steer future metrology research.

Open Consultation on Metrology for Digital Transformation 2021

Industry, health, climate, society – in all areas, digital transformation is changing the way we live and work. Digital transformation cannot happen without reliable digital data. Reliable measurements, producing data for digital systems, continue to be essential for innovation, productivity, and evidence-based decision making. Metrology fosters the development of tools ensuring that measured and processed data in digital systems is accurate and reliable - underpinning the value of data and data products for the end user.

In this open consultation EURAMET, the European Association of National Metrology Institutes, invites stakeholders to share their vision on digital transformation and related measurement science needs. These stakeholder needs will help guide the development of the 2022 call “Metrology support for Digital Transformation” within the European Partnership on Metrology

EURAMET & it's European Metrology Research Programmes: supporting the COVID-19 pandemic response

In 2020, the world was witness to the global COVID-19 pandemic. In a short space of time, we have all had to adapt to the changes brought by this public health crisis to many aspects of our lives.

As the extent of the COVID-19 pandemic became clear early in 2020, EURAMET has sought to assess the ways in which joint research projects under its past and present research programmes, as well as the metrology community overall, had been contributing to the pandemic response. 

At present, countries across the globe are experiencing different stages of the wave of the infection, leading to varying levels of government-enforced lockdown restraints that are influenced by the rate of accrual of new infections.

To delineate true cases from other ‘flu-like’ symptoms, reliable testing has been essential, and now with the development of vaccines and their gradual distribution to people most at risk, there are new and evolving measurement challenges facing healthcare systems around the world.

EURAMET has played its part in supporting European research efforts with testing for the virusindustry recovery from the pandemic, and the accurate delivery of vital medications to critically ill patients in hospitals.
