EMRP Call 2011 - Health, SI Broader Scope & New Technologies

The aim of this call was to advance measurement science and technology by providing funding for Joint Research Projects and associated Researcher Grants in the fields: Health, SI Broader Scope and New Technologies.

The Health projects support the reliable and efficient exploitation of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and the development of new technologies to improve healthcare and patient protection, while limiting costs. Focus is placed on research to address major health-related societal challenges including lifestyle-related health issues, neurodegenerative diseases and global health issues such as anti-microbial resistance and emerging epidemics.

The SI Broader Scope projects are developing the SI system of measurement units.The projects focus on preparations for the implementation of the redefinition of the kilogram and support developments of practical realisations of the redefined base units and affected derived units.

New Technology projects support new scientific and technical developments with a suitable measurement infrastructure, stimulate technological innovation and improve the data needed for policy making and regulation. Focus is placed on nanotechnology and other areas that require extra efforts to develop new measurement tools and methods such as new materials, security, biotechnology, mathematics and computing.
