New technologies demand new measurement techniques. The European Commission recognises the importance of a proper metrological infrastructure to the development of innovative solutions and therefore created the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP). In this, links are made to societal spearheads: Energy, Environment, Industry, Health, New technology and the development of the basic units of the SI system.
VSL is involved in a great many of these research projects as National Metrology Institute (NMI).
General information about EMRP projects may also be found on Euramet’s website.
