EURAMET e.V. and the EMPIR members invite interested parties to submit fundamental topics.
Stage 1 offers the chance for all stakeholders from any country to influence the R&D projects undertaken by the European metrology community by identifying the challenge, problem or opportunity for potential research topics (PRT).
The highest priority research topics received in Stage 1 will provide the basis for Stage 2.
To submit a PRT please upload your completed Word document (using the template provided), via the Stage 1 submit tab, by the deadline of 20 February 2017 23:59 CET
EURAMET has developed a Strategic Research Agenda for European Metrology. The current version can be found here.
There is a European manifesto to launch an ambitious initiative in quantum technologies. The manifesto can be found here.
EURAMET and QUANTERA intend to cooperate to avoid duplication and guide proposers to the appropriate call. More information can be found 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.
Partnering meetings serve as a platform to build consortia to address a particular SRT. Partnering meetings are arranged by potential proposers at a host institute. Neither the host institute nor EURAMET are responsible for the agenda of the individual partnering meetings. Specifics of partnering meetings;

This web facility allows you to:
Connections and partnering meetings are independent, registering an interest with conn ections does not mean you are registered for a partnering meeting.
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 (02 October 2017). 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.
|Review Conference for Fundamental|
All eligible proposals will go forward to be evaluated at the Review Conference to be held on 7th to 16th November at the Novotel Monte Carlo, Monaco. The proposed schedule is
