Stage 1 of Call 2017 - Industry - is CLOSED
OPENING DATE: 10 January 2017
CLOSING DATE: 20 February 2017

EURAMET e.V. and the EMPIR members invite interested parties to submit industry 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.

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 2017

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;

  • In principle all interested parties may attend a specific EMPIR partnering meeting but must register either via an online portal or by e-mail (details below).
  • Connections and partnering meetings are independent, registering an interest with connections does not mean you are registered for a partnering meeting. To register interest in a SRT via connections and see who else is interested click HERE.
  • Co-authorship of a (specific) PRT is not a precondition for attending a partnering meeting.
  • Attendance at a partnering meeting is not a precondition for joining a consortium nor a guarantee of a place within one.
  • If a partnering meeting is rescheduled the MSU and the original hosting institution must be informed.
  • The host institute has the right to close registration early should venue capacity be reached.
  • EURAMET have been made aware of the following partnering meetings.

    • Advertise the skills and or equipment you have to offer
    • Identify partners for your consortium
    • Receive email alerts when someone new registers an interest in the same area as you


    • It isn't compulsory to use this webpage, you can identify/ select your consortium in any way you choose. (Registration is however strongly recommended)
    • Registering your interest on this webpage will not guarantee you a place in any consortium

    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.

    Show SRTs for Industry

    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 Industry

    All eligible proposals will go forward to be evaluated at the Review Conference to be held on 13th to 14th November at the Novotel Monte Carlo, Monaco. The proposed schedule is

    • Registration is from 08:00 - 09:00 hrs on the first day
    • JRP representatives are only required on the first day
    • Referees MUST stay at the review conference hotel. Registration/hotel booking forms will be sent to invited referees by the EURAMET MSU. An honorarium will be paid to each referee for attending the review conference. Hotel accommodation costs and major travel expenses can also be reimbursed (please see Form 6b: Payment to Referees for further information).
