The evaluation process of the Stage 2 Call for 2015 has been finalised.

Following the Review Conference held in November, where external independent referees evaluated and ranked the proposals, the EMPIR Committee agreed on a final list of selected projects to fund. The following project proposals have been selected and will be invited for contract negotiation:


  • Quantitative measurement and imaging of drug-uptake by bacteria with antimicrobial resistance
  • Role of metals and metal containing biomolecules in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease
  • Metrology for modern hearing assessment and protecting public health from emerging noise sources
  • Innovative measurements for improved diagnosis and management of neurodegenerative diseases
  • Metrology for multi-modality imaging of impaired tissue perfusion
  • Metrology for clinical implementation of dosimetry in molecular radiotherapy
  • Novel materials and methods for the detection, traceable monitoring and evaluation of antimicrobial resistance
  • Metrology for MR guided radiotherapy
  • Metrology for additively manufactured medical implants


  • Metrology for sampling and conditioning SO2 emissions from stacks
  • Techniques for ultra-high voltage and very fast transients
  • Metrology for sustainable hydrogen energy applications
  • Standard tests and requirements for rate-of-change of frequency (ROCOF) measurements in smart grids

Research Potential

  • Development of RF and microwave metrology capability
  • Underwater acoustic calibration standards for frequencies below 1 kHz
  • Expansion of European research capabilities in humidity measurement
  • Traceability routes for electrical power quality measurements

SI Broader Scope

  • Reference algorithms and metrology on aspherical and freeform lenses
  • Implementing the new kelvin 2
  • Optical clocks with 1E-18 uncertainty
  • Waveform metrology based on spectrally pure Josephson voltages• Optical frequency transfer - a European network
  • Nano-scale traceable magnetic field measurements
  • Future photometry based on solid-state lighting products
  • Quantum realisation of the SI ampere
  • Traceable three-dimensional nanometrology
  • Radionuclide beta spectra metrology

Support for Impact
The previous EMRP JRP that each SIP is linked to is shown in brackets

  • Standard to certify the purity of zero gas in ambient air measurements (ENV01)
  • An International Standard for Reliable Chemical Depth Profiling of Organic Materials (NEW01)
  • Standards and e-learning course to maximize the uptake of infusion and calibration best practices (HLT07)Time synchronization impact enabling future network communication (SIB02)
  • Methodology and software to increase uptake of advanced uncertainty evaluation methods (NEW04)
  • Validation of software development and analysis tools using TraCIM (NEW06)
