Development of a humidity measurement infrastructure will provide the tools needed to improve efficiency and quality in industry
Humidity is one of the most important properties affecting everyday processes from indoor ventilation to the storage of food products and pharmaceuticals. As a result, the ability to accurately measure humidity is vital to increasing efficiency, competiveness and providing quality assurance across a huge variety of European industries. This project has developed new measurement methods and shares best practice with emerging NMIs by providing an infrastructure for reliable, traceable humidity measurements across Europe. A particular focus has been placed on capabilities to meet the needs of each country’s key industries to allow them to gain a competitive edge. Strategies for the continued development of humidity measurement capabilities will be developed, to prepare the future metrological landscape and ensure European industry has access to the facilities it needs well beyond the duration of the project.
