Stage 1 of Call 2015 - Health is NOW CLOSED
OPENING DATE: 2 February 2015
CLOSING DATE: 17 March 2015

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

Stage 1 Documentation

To submit a Potential Research Topic please upload your completed Word document (using the template provided), via the Stage 1 submit tab, by the deadline of 17 March 2015 23:59 CET

Call is now closed

OPENING DATE: 23 June 2015

The EMPIR Committee has selected twenty two research topics (SRTs) for Health from the potential metrology research topics (PRTs) submitted at Stage 1. Some SRTs contain inputs from more than one single PRT as similar ideas have been combined where appropriate. These SRTs are the basis of the Joint Research Projects (JRPs) which consortia are invited to submit.

Some countries have declared a strategic priority for inclusion in particular projects. Coordinators are requested to seek the involvement of partners from these countries. The list of priorities is HERE

This web facility allows you to:

  • Register an interest in participating in research
  • 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 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.

Connections now closed

Details entered here will be publicly available from these web pages until the close of Stage 2 of the call (28 September 2020). 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 Health

All eligible proposals will go forward to be evaluated at the Review Conference to be held on Sunday 22 November to Monday 23 November at the Novotel Rotterdam Brainpark, Rotterdam.

Useful information

  • The Review Conference will start before 9:00 on the first day
  • Proposers will be able to leave in the early evening of the first day
