The meetings of two subfields of EUROMET EM were arranged by MIKES during the same week, 25 - 29 June, 2007, in Espoo, Finland. The meeting of DC and quantum metrology experts was held from Monday to Wednesday, 25 - 27 June, and the meeting of LF experts from Wednesday to Friday, 27 - 29 June, in such a way that on Wednesday the two meetings had common sessions. The idea was to bring together the experts of both subfields to discuss topics of common interest.

There were altogether 93 participants in the two meetings, 74 of them from outside Finland, and 28 of the foreign guests participated both meetings. In addition to most of the EUROMET countries, there were participants from Australia, Canada, China, Egypt, Japan, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, and USA. Talks and posters were very interesting, and both of the meetings, including the common day, were very successful. Topics of the talks included EUROMET comparisons, new quantum Hall materials and structures, single charge transport, AC applications of Josephson arrays, new developments in ac-dc transfer, and calibration and verification of power quality analysers. Sessions on JRP proposals for iMERA-PLUS were arranged, as well. A lab tour to MIKES was arranged on Wednesday, and lab tours to VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and the Low Temperature Laboratory of the Helsinki University of Technology were arranged on Tuesday.
