The EMRP:
• supports the collaboration of European metrology institutes,
industrial organisations and academia through Joint Research
Projects (JRPs).
• is implemented by EURAMET (European Association of
National Metrology Institutes).
• is based on Article 185 of the Lisbon Treaty.
• is jointly funded by the EMRP participating countries and the
European Union (50:50) and has a budget of approximately
400 M€ over seven years.
4
The EMRP:
• is structured around European Grand Challenges in: Health,
Energy, the Environment & New Technologies, while also
addressing challenges in fundamental metrology and industry.
• is about improving measurement, in order to drive innovation
and competitiveness in Europe.
• ensures collaboration between National Measurement
Institutes, reducing duplication and increasing impact. Current
JRP impacts include: input to standards (ISO, CEN) and the
redefinition of SI units and the production of reference
materials, good practice guides and new measurement
devices, software and facilities.

The EMRP Funds:
•
Multi-partner Joint Research Projects (JRPs).
•
The JRPs are primarily undertaken by the National
Metrology Institutes (NMIs) and Designated Institutes (DIs)
of the countries participating in the EMRP.
•
However, other organisations are able to participate in the
JRPs with their own resources. They can participate as:
o Unfunded JRP-Partners – part of the JRP-Consortium.
o JRP Collaborators .

The EMRP Funds:

Researcher Grants offer financial support to the wider
European research community. Three types of researcher
grants supplement the JRPs:
1. Researcher Excellence Grants (REGs) – Individual and
Organisation REGs provide funding for excellent research
and bring expertise to the JRP from universities or other
industrial organisations.
2. Researcher Mobility Grants – enable researchers to
move between the National Metrology Institutes,
especially from non-EMRP participating countries.
3. Early-Stage Researcher Mobility Grants – help develop
the next generation of metrologists.

EMRP Calls
Energy - Calls in 2009
& 2013
SI Units - Calls in 2011
& 2012
Environment - Calls in
2010 & 2013
Health - Call in 2010
Industry - Calls in 2010
& 2012
New Technologies Call in 2011
11
Industry – Call 2012
Developing methods to improve traceability for the most
demanding industrial measurements. Projects will support new
and emerging technologies and improve efficiency of existing
technologies. They should involve industrial partners and the
transfer of technology and knowledge to end-users.
12
Industry JRP IND04
IND04: Ionising radiation metrology for the metallurgical industry
Preventing the spread of radiation in European steel
Millions of tonnes of scrap steel are produced each year, which could
potentially be contaminated by radioactive sources. This JRP will
produce new reference materials,
methods and devices to improve
the detection of radioactivity in
scrap loads – reducing human
health risks, trade disputes and
environmental exposure across
Europe.
13
Industry JRP IND07
IND07: Metrology for the manufacturing of thin films
Helping thin film technologies become a reality
Thin film materials possess novel properties not found in bulk materials
that enable their use in flexible LCDs and solar panels. This JRP will
improve the Nanoscale
measurements needed
to develop thin film technologies,
improving our understanding
of film properties and reducing
material and energy costs.
14
Call 2012:
• Stage 1 - Call for Potential metrology Research Topics (PRT).
Closed 18th March.
• Stage 2 - Call for JRP proposals, with optional, integrated
Researcher Excellence Grant applications. Full SRT documents
are published with the Stage 2 call. The Call opens 18th June.
• Stage 3 - Call on behalf of the JRP-Consortia for Researcher
Excellence Grant (REG) and Researcher Mobility Grant (RMG)
applications. Each year stage 3 opens end of March and closes
at the beginning of May. All JRPs from previous calls can
advertise for REGs and RMGs.
