Research Impacts

The increased coordination of European measurement research was driven by emerging societal needs in grand challenges areas such as health, food, environment, energy and security. 

EURAMET's European Metrology Research Programmes (EMRP and EMPIR) are bringing together world-class measurement expertise in a series of targeted projects in response to these challenges.


These pages provide information for the public and policy makers about the impact measurement has in our daily lives.

Measurements for Health

The European metrology community is working collectively to conduct the healthcare research needed to improve measurements and analysis. EURAMET established a multidisciplinary Health Task Group and Health research themes under its European Metrology Research Programmes to bring together metrology expertise in physics, chemistry and biology to support improved diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions. Impact examples of this research are provided on the 'Measurements for Health' pages.

Measurements for Environment

In 2010 and 2013, EURAMET's European Metrology Research Programme launched calls for projects in this area with an aim to improve data quality for environmental policy making, underpin environmental research activities and stimulate technological innovation. Focus was placed at both the local environmental level for air, water and soil quality and at the global level for challenges relating to climate change. Impact examples of this research are provided on the 'Measurements for Environment' pages.
