The European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP) was mentioned in a press release that answered some frequently asked questions about the EU FP7 2013 work programme.
One of the EMRP's main goals is to pool together the national research capabilities of the participating countries to achieve outcomes that could not be achieved by the countries on their own.
In answer to the question of why taxpayers should fund research and development at EU level, the press release states:
"Some research is both very expensive and needs to be done on a very large scale to provide meaningful results. It is crucial to maximise value for money. Doing certain research collaboratively at EU level avoids duplication and allows pooling of skills and existing knowledge, in ways that could not be achieved by purely national spending. For example, the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP), set up in 2009, has brought together the national metrology research plans of 22 countries."
