EURAMET e.V. and the EMPIR members invite interested parties to submit research potential topics.
RPOTs should include some research and development activities and in this respect they differ from the technical assistance nature of cooperation, however they do not need to address fundamental scientific challenges. An important element of RPOTs is the collaboration between NMIs/DIs that are less experienced in a relevant field with NMIs/DIs with greater experience, with the aim of establishing and developing metrology capabilities and the potential for metrology research.
The highest priority research topics received in Stage 1 will provide the basis for Stage 2.
To submit a research potential topic please upload your completed RPOT Word document (using the template provided), via the Stage 1 submit tab, by the deadline of 25 March 2014 23:59 CET
Please note that the template for RPOT Topics and IND Topics is the same document
The EMPIR Committee has selected nine research topics (SRTs) for Research Potential from the potential metrology research topics (PRTs) submitted at Stage 1. Some SRTs contain inputs from more than one single PRT as similar ideas have been combined where appropriate. These SRTs are the basis of the Joint Research Projects (JRPs) which consortia will be invited to submit.

Some countries have declared a strategic priority for inclusion in particular projects. Coordinators are requested to seek the involvement of partners from these countries. The list of priorities is HERE

The EMPIR Call Process Guides are written generically to apply to all EMPIR calls. Where there are particular numbers, dates, or options that apply to a particular call then those details are given in the PDF link below. Readers should start with the Guides for an explanation of the call process and refer to this PDF link when directed for the specific information on an individual TP or call.Call Budget and Features: EMPIR Call 2014
EURAMET have been made aware of the following partnering meetings.
NOTE: these partnering meetings are arranged by potential proposers and not by EURAMET
(Attendance to these meetings does not guarantee inclusion in a consortium)

This web facility allows you to:
To register interest as an individual or organisation click on the appropriate Selected Research Topic (SRT) listed below.
Details entered here will be publicly available from these web pages until the close of Stage 2 of the call (5 October 2015). EURAMET is not responsible for facilitating communications between participants beyond providing this meeting area. It is the responsibility of individuals to make contact using the details that are given by potential contributors, made available here.
It should be noted that it is possible for more than one consortia to be formed from the interested parties, and more than one submission made to deliver a proposal. Projects are envisaged to be of such size and value that not all proposals can be funded.
|Consensus Group Meeting for RPOTs|
The Consensus Group Meeting for RPOTs is on Wednesday 19 November at the Park Inn Hotel, Prague.
Proposers are NOT ALLOWED to attend a consensus group meeting.
