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.
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
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:
|1||Metrology for low-frequency sound insulation of facades of buildings|
|2||Metrology for key control characteristics of graphene|
|3||Metrology for the determination of emissions of dangerous substances into indoor air|
|4||Metrology for advanced theoretical models including quantum effects to describe laser-induced damage on the nano scale|
|5||Metrology for the validation for determining the output in concentration of elemental mercury (Hg0) and oxidized mercury (Hg2+) generators|
|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.

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:
