This call is the second Stage of the Research potential general call. Applicants for Stage 2 are requested to draft their proposals according to one or several of 9 research topics (SRTs) selected at stage 1. This call for proposals aims at supporting capacity-building projects on metrology with the view to bridge the capacity gap between EURAMET Member countries and regions regarding metrology.

Priorities and funded actions:

– To achieve a balanced and integrated metrology system in the EMPIR participating states, enabling them to develop their scientific and technical capabilities in metrology
– To develop the potential for metrology research of the organisations that participate in the EMPIR programme 

Research Topics
– Towards the propagation of ac quantum voltage standards
– Traceable calibration of dynamic weighing instruments
– Absorbed dose in water and air
– Developing traceable capabilities in thermal metrology
– Traceable AFM measurement capability
– Developing metrology research potential in [country]
– Traceability for time and frequency
– Matrix reference materials for environmental analysis
– Traceability for Humidity

Among financed actions
– Basic and applied research 
– Technology development and integration
– Testing and validation on a small-scale prototype in a laboratory or simulated environment
– Limited demonstration activities
