VSL heeft goede score behaald in de EMPIR 2017 calls


Eind november is de uitslag van de recente EMPIR (European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research) calls bekend gemaakt. VSL heeft dit jaar zeer goed gescoord. Van de 16 ingediende JRPs (Joint Research Projects) zijn er maar liefst 12 goedgekeurd. Halverwege 2018 gaan er daardoor 5 nieuwe EMPIR-projecten starten binnen het thema Industry, 2 binnen Fundamental, 4 binnen Normative en 1 SIP (Support for Impact Project). De projecten betreffen:

- Metrology for the next‐generation digital substation instrumentation
- Metrology for the Factory of the Future
- Metrology for Airborne Molecular Contaminants II
- Development of measurement and calibration techniques for dynamic pressures and temperatures
- Precision Time for Industry

- Light‐matter interplay for optical metrology beyond the classical spatial resolution limits
- Photonic and Optomechanical Sensors for Nanoscaled and Quantum Thermometry

- Improved traceability chain of nanoparticle size measurements
- Advancing measurement uncertainty - comprehensive examples for key international standards
- Electromagnetic Interference on Static Electricity Meters
- Metrology for assessing Energy Performance of Buildings under operating conditions

- A traceable, faster, more accurate and measurement software for Vector Network Analysers
