OPENING DATE: 10 January 2018

CLOSING DATE: 19 February 2018

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

The highest priority network 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 2018

Partnering meetings serve as a platform to build consortia to address a particular SNT. 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 SNT click HERE.
  • Co-authorship of a (specific) PNT 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.
