Public Consultation on the Joint Programming on Metrology Research

The metrology initiatives, set up under Article 185 TFEU, European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP) and its successor European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) target joint programming metrology research across Europe. Under these two initiatives the participating states commit to integrate their national metrology programmes into a single joint research programme. The total budget for EMRP is 400M€ and for EMPIR the budget is increased to 600 M€. The European Commission provides half of the funding to the initiatives, while the participating states commit to provide the other half. This consultation gives the opportunity to provide input on the state of play of the European metrology research system and the challenges it is facing. It is specifically seeking contributions to analyse the experience of joint programming preparation and implementation, identify critical issues that need to be addressed, possibly propose adjustments, and assess how the instrument can best contribute to the policy developments.
