One of EURAMET’s newest members, Moldova, participates in three EMPIR research potential projects

The National Institute of Metrology of the Republic of Moldova, INM-MD, gained full member status in EURAMET in May 2019 when all current members voted unanimously for giving entry to this NMI.

Despite having only recently joined EURAMET, the Moldovan National Metrology Institute (NMI) is already participating in three research potential projects (RPTs) within the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research, EMPIR.

Research potential projects form part of EURAMET’s EMPIR Capacity Building projects which aim to support the development of metrological expertise in emerging NMIs and designated Institutes (DIs), whilst increasing interactions and extending the capability of more developed institutions. These projects form a key EURAMET tool for creating a coherent, efficient and sustainable metrology landscape in Europe.

 

The EMPIR research potential projects that INM-MD is participating in as a project partner are:

Collectively these three projects bring together 25 NMIs and DIs from across Europe with academia and industry. As a partner in these projects INM-MD will be helping to develop metrological capacity to deliver an efficient, balanced and integrated European metrology infrastructure which meets national and European needs in these fields.

Research Mobility Grants

INM-MD staff are also benefiting from two Research Mobility Grants, which aim to increase participation and diversify capacities in metrology and prepare the next generation of researchers to continue collaborations:


EMPIR projects are co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the EMPIR Participating States.
