iMERA-Plus SI and Fundamental T1.J1.1 e-Mass The watt balance route towards a new definition of the kilogram completed 2007
iMERA-Plus SI and Fundamental T1.J1.4 Boltzmann constant Determination of the Boltzmann constant for the redefinition of the kelvin Joachim Fischer completed 2007
iMERA-Plus SI and Fundamental T1.J1.2 NAH Avogadro and molar Planck constants for the redefinition of the kilogram Giovanni Mana completed 2007
iMERA-Plus SI and Fundamental T1.J1.3 REUNIAM Foundations for a redefinition of the SI base unit ampere completed 2007
iMERA-Plus SI and Fundamental T1.J2.1 OCS Optical clocks for a new definition of the second completed 2007
iMERA-Plus SI and Fundamental T1.J2.3 qu-Candela Candela: towards quantum-based photon standards Maria Luisa Rastello completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J02 Breath analysis Breath analysis as a diagnostic tool for early disease detection Early disease detection is getting increased attention in the medical sector. In early stages, many diseases know little or no suffering at all, and the prospects of curing are much better. Early disease detection can literally mean the difference between life and death. Adriaan van der Veen completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J04 Regenmed Metrology on a cellular scale for regenerative medicine New and innovative forms of therapies, based on stem cells and tissue engineered medical products offer the hope of developing customizable implantable artificial tissue to overcome shortages of transplant organs and revolutionize injury and disease treatment. The project developed internationally accepted measurement technologies and standards to overcome major difficulties such as the scale up from lab to commercial scale production, predicting the long-term behaviour of products and satisfying regulators of the safety of the products. Paul Tomlins completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J06 Brachytherapy Increasing cancer treatment efficacy using 3D brachytherapy Brachytherapy (BT) is a radiotherapy technique in which small encapsulated radioactive sources are placed inside or in close proximity to the treatment volume, delivering a high dose to the tumour at small distances while sparing the surrounding tissue. About 100 000 patients per year are treated in the European area with BT (about 10% of radiotherapy treatments). Maria Pia Toni completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J07 EBCT External Beam Cancer Therapy In the European Union there are about 2.3 million cancer incidents every year. In terms of the number of deaths caused per year, cancer ranges second in the European mortality statistics. Given the massive extent of the cancer threat, decisive measures are required to improve cure rates. Ulrike Ankerhold completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J10 TRACEBIOACTIVITY Traceable measurements for biospecies and ion activity in clinical chemistry Traceable measurement results in clinical chemistry are mandatory in Europe. Within this framework, measurement methods and materials are evaluated which can serve as the required higher order reference points and which are linked with the SI as closely as possible. Reference and test laboratories in Europe profit from this newly developed system in a fast and efficient way. Bernd Güttler completed 2007
iMERA-Plus Health T2.J.11 CLINBIOTRACE Traceability of Complex Biomolecules and Biomarkers in Diagnostics - Effecting Measurement Comparability in Clinical Medicine Stakeholders representing policy, diagnostic industry, academia and healthcare quality assessors, have highlighted the need for the further development of traceable reference measurement systems for complex biomolecules (e.g. disease state biomarkers and protein markers relevant for therapeutic intervention). Helen Parkes completed 2007
