Session 3.6 – Metrology – next steps

31 October 2018, 14:30-15:30, room STRAUSS 3


This session will provide insights from stakeholders throughout the metrology service chain, from the national metrology institutes to the end-users. The session will focus on emerging metrology needs, and related research activities and, in particular, present capacity-building actions at national and European level (e.g. the EMPIR programme). Considerations of maximising the impact and dissemination of metrology research results will be shared. Future programming possibilities to extend EU-wide metrology collaboration in emerging strategic challenges and the engagement of a larger measurement community will be trending topics during this session.
