OPENING DATE: 10 January 2018
CLOSING DATE: 19 February 2018

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 normative topics (PRT).

The highest priority normative topics received in Stage 1 will provide the basis for Stage 2.
