  • Objective is to increase impact from national investment in metrology R&D

  • Approach:

    • Exchange of information between national programmes will enable best practice to be identified and adopted Leading to a substantial increase in project level collaboration

    • Strategic activities will lead to the launching of joint research projects, funded by the existing national programmes.

    • Access to special metrological facilities available in just one or few countries

    • Joint investments in new facilities explored.

  • Final aim is a joint metrology R&D programme:

    • Preparation of a European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP)

    • Prospect of a joint action implementing the EMRP between the European Commission and interested countries utilising Article 169 of the European Treaty.

Research1
Research

  • “Quick start” shared value pilot projects under way

  • New Joint Research Projects protocol developed and 11 pilot JRPs launched

  • Roadmaps developed covering existing and new metrology areas (41 drafts)

  • Implementing a European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP)

T4 4 quick start project
T4.4 ‘Quick Start’ Project

Objectives of the Task:

  • Early launch of a pilot project using common funding

    • Imposed by Commission…very late in the day!

  • Test the practical aspects of managing centrally funded projects

  • R&D complete by month 12, report on lessons learnt by month 15

    • 1st quick start project launched “Study of a real-time control unit for JDAC arrays: application to watt balance experiments”, June 2005;

    • 2nd quick start project launched “High temperature fixed points for contact thermometry: project Cockpit”, December 2005;

T 3 3 template jrps
T 3.3 – Template JRPs

A new iMERA R&D project template tries to capture the helpful parts of an EU contract in a simpler form

The new form aims to set out for each project:

  • Clear technical and scientific objectives

  • Projected impact

  • Defined work programme

  • Partner responsibilities

  • Funding agreement

  • Deliverables with due dates

  • Identified and committed resources from the partners against each work package

Joint research projects
Joint Research Projects

  • Toward more accurate temperature fixed points (FR)

  • Determination of an accurate Ttp vs x (isotopic) relationship for neon (IT)

  • Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology: a European collaboration in research (IT)

  • Recommendations for the calibration and evaluation of pH on site measuring instruments (FR)

  • Use of the Temperature Amplifier as a new temperature standard for contact thermometry (IT)

  • Improved Thermodynamic Temperature Measurement Capability for high-temperature blackbodies (DE)

  • Measurement of acoustical impedance of artificial ears (GB)

  • Tip and sample interactions in scanning probe microscopy (GB)

  • New Determinationsof the BoltzmannConstant (DE)

Emrp tasks t4 1 t5 1
EMRP Tasks – T4.1 – T5.1

Guiding principles and philosophy (1):

  • Comply but not duplicate FP 7 requirements/content;

  • National R&D programmes basis;

  • Future oriented (new needs, domains, areas,..);

  • Balanced, if possible, R&D and support activities;

  • Balanced between horizontal themes and “SI units”;

  • Broad programmes (targeted programmes).
