Call 2007 EMRP Phase 1( iMERA-Plus)

The first phase of the EMRP (iMERA-Plus grant agreement no. 217257) was successfully launched in 2007 and was the first of a new type of medium-sized action launched under FP7 (ERA-NET Plus), which aimed at aligning and enhancing national programmes.

The aim of this call is to advance measurement science and technology in the following areas:

Resources from the publicly funded metrology laboratories from around 19 European countries, plus the European Commission's measurement institute (IRMM) have been committed within a single joint call for metrology research projects. In total, 64.6 M € of resources have been brought together, with the European Commission providing 21 M € of funding, the balance provided from national resources.

The two-step call ran between May and December 2007, and pivoted on independent peer review and selection of the very best metrology research proposals. The original 'Call for Expressions of Interest for R&D in metrology' closed on 6 July 2007, and has now been archived

A total of 21 Joint Research Projects on SI and Fundamental metrology, have been launched in four targeted programmes, each project chosen for the quality of science and potential to make a significant contribution in its field. Details of these projects, and their progress is available at the EURAMET website
