The evaluation process of the Stage 2 Call for 2017 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:
