Stage 1 of Call 2019 - Normative - CLOSED
OPENING DATE: 9 January 2019
CLOSING DATE: 18 February 2019

EURAMET e.V. and the EMPIR members invite interested parties to submit normative 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 normative topics (PRT).

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

Stage 1 Documentation

To submit a PRT please upload your completed Word document (using the template provided), via the Stage 1 submit tab, by the deadline of 18 February 2019 23:59 CET

Call is now closed

In preparation for this call, EURAMET invited organisations with an interest in standardisation to submit briefing material to inform those submitting potential research topics.

The CEN/CENELEC priority research topics can be found below:

6 Metrology for footwear specifications
7 Metrology for footwear and footwear components slip resistance tests
8 Metrology for the determination of aerobic disintegration and biodegradation of footwear and footwear materials under controlled composting conditions
9 Metrology for assessing the accuracy performance of Instrument Transformers intended to be used for Power Quality measurements.
10 Metrology for the determination of traceable disturbance emissions in reverberation chambers for conformity assessment purposes

The CIE priority research topics can be found below

1 Metrology for determination of light and radiation in LED lamps, luminaires, and modules
2 Metrology for quantifying temporal light modulation
3 Metrology for the calibration and characterization of luminance measurements for HDR-cameras
4 Metrology for the performance of light dosimeters when monitoring non-visual effects and related visual effects

Further detailed needs are being collected by CEN and CENELEC and CIE will be published here as they become available. Please check this page for updates during the call.

In this call's scope, a particular mention is given to Quantum Technologies. More information can be found here

ETSI priorities for 2018-2019 can be found here.

The CEN CENELEC workplan for 2018 listing all their current priorities can be found here.

EURAMET consulted its members on which European Regulations they supported through their research work or measurement services. The current version of the resulting document (end of 2018) is available here.

To EURAMET has developed a Strategic Research Agenda for Metrology in Europe. The current version can be found here

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.

    • Identify partners for your consortium
    • Receive email alerts when someone new registers an interest in the same area as you

    BUT

    • 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 connections 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 (30 September 2019). 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.

    All eligible proposals will go forward to be evaluated at a Review Conference or Consensus Group Meeting to be held between 5 to 14 November at the Park Plaza Amsterdam Airport Hotel. The proposed schedule is:

    • Support for Networks Review Conference: 5 and 6 Nov 2019
    • Normative Review Conference: 7 and 8 Nov 2019**
    • Research Potential Review Conference: 7 and 8 Nov 2019**
    • Support for Impact Consensus Group Meeting: 10 Nov 2019
    • Energy Review Conference: 11 and 12 Nov 2019
    • Environment Review Conference: 13 and 14 Nov 2019
    ** Please note that the Normative and Research Potential Review Conferences will be held in parallel sessions on the 7 and 8 November.
