Renewables: EMPIR projects on biogases, hydrogen and PV presented at CIM 2019

24 – 26 September 2019 Paris, France

CIM 2019 conference

The 19th International Metrology Congress (CIM 2019) is a unique crossroads between R&D and industrial applications. It covers a majority of fields including mechanics, health and biology, agro-food industry, environment, energy, pharmaceuticals and chemicals.

The congress deals with R&D and best practices for measurement and metrology in industry through the following approaches: a diversified conference programme and round tables sessions, an exhibition showcasing innovations and solutions, industrial site visits and demonstrations and professional networking opportunities during social events

EMPIR environment projects

EURAMET supports many projects that establish the measurement infrastructure necessary to underpin Europe’s need to ensure sustainable growth, while protecting the environment and safeguarding our quality of life.

The aim for these projects within the European Metrology Research Programmes (EMRP and EMPIR) is to improve data quality for environmental policy making, underpin environmental research activities and stimulate technological innovation. Focus is placed at both the local environmental level for air, water and soil quality and at the global level for challenges relating to climate change. The projects are broad in scope, covering topics such as measurement science for Earth observation, oceanography, pollution monitoring and radioactive waste management.

Come and join the EMPIR and EMRP environment projects presenting at CIM 2019:
