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.
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
This call has NOW CLOSED
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

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 2016). 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.
