European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP)

The Euramet European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP) has enabled European metrology institutes, industrial organisations and academia to collaborate on joint research projects within specified fields: industry, energy, environment, health, new technologies and SI units. Annual EMRP research calls between 2009 and 2013 enabled the funding of 119 projects. Each project ran for three years with the final projects completed in 2017. 400 M€ of funding for these project was provided by 23 participating EU member states and by the European Union.

The successor programme - European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) continued to support measurement research projects in the same fields as the EMRP with additional themes for Fundamental, Normative, Research Potential, Support for Networks and Support for Impact projects. The European Partnership on Metrology builds on the success of EMRP and EMPIR, and additional themes for European Green Deal, Integrated European Metrology, Digital Transformation and Capacity Building projects were included.
