European Partnership on Metrology

The Metrology Partnership will bring together the measurement science community and stakeholders to deliver on global challenges including health and climate, support the European Green Deal, and underpin innovation in industry through collaborative research.

Metrology, the science of measurement, is a building block for an industrialised and increasingly globalised and digital society: Reliable measurements are essential for innovation in industry, research, trade and regulation. New societal challenges and emerging technologies increase the need for accurate, precise, and trustworthy measurements and thus for novel measurement capabilities.

The Metrology Partnership aims to support accelerating the transition towards a green, climate neutral and digital Europe, as well as strengthening the resilience, competitiveness, and economic growth of the European industry.

European Partnerships are a key implementation tool of the European Commission’s Horizon Europe; an ambitious research and innovation programme, running from 2021 to 2027.

The European Partnership on Metrology is co-funded by the Member States and the European Union with an expected budget of over 650 million euro. The expected impact of the European Partnership on Metrology is manifold, as it will support a wide range of policies, commerce and advancement of key European challenges.

The Partnership builds on the progress achieved under the previous European Metrology Research Programmes, and aims to break new ground by contributing to the development of self-sustaining, coordinated metrology infrastructures, with the capacity to continue joint research and innovation after 2030.
