EMRP ‘Metrology for Health’ impact report published

The newly published Impact Report for EMRP theme ‘Metrology for Health’ contains examples of the early adoption of EU funded science and technology and information on new measurement developments.

High quality healthcare is underpinned by the accurate physical, chemical and biological measurements used to diagnose health conditions and ensure therapies are delivered safely and effectively. The aim of the EMRP health theme was to develop the measurement methods and techniques to support increased accuracy of disease identification and treatment of serious health conditions.

This report explores new measurement capabilities developed as a result of NMI collaborations within the health projects. 66 research groups from 28 metrology institutes came together with academia, industry and clinicians to address accurate measurements and high quality assessments of data to support the provision of healthcare in Europe.

The report focusses on two sub-themes: metrology for quantitative disease diagnosis and metrology for safe and effective therapies. In addition, a set of 19 case studies concentrates more closely on the benefits already being delivered to health care professionals and patients.

The eleven health projects were carried out as part of EURAMET’s European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP), which combines the knowledge, expertise and facilities of Europe's measurement community to address global challenges in areas such as energy, environment and health.
