EMPIR Call 2016 - Energy, Environment, Normative, Research Potential & Support for Impact

In 2016 EURAMET issued calls for joint research for 'Metrology for Energy', 'Metrology for Environment', 'Metrology for Pre-Co Normative' and 'Research Potential' following a two stage process.

EURAMET also issued a Call for Support for Impact projects designed to increase the impact from completed i-MERA Plus and EMRP projects.
