Public consultation on European Metrology Research under Horizon 2020
On October 1 2012, the Commission launched a public consultation on the future of European metrology research under Horizon 2020, the EU's new programme for research and innovation for 2014 to 2020. The European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP) was established under FP7 to facilitate closer integration of national research programmes in the field. EMRP is jointly supported by 22 participating Member States and associated countries and the European Commission. This initiative has- according to its mid-term assessment- clearly contributed to the creation of the European Research Area (ERA) in metrology research. However further steps could be done and further integration- in particular towards Member States having little metrology capacity- is suggested.

The Commission is seeking input from citizens, organisations and public authorities to assess the state of play of the European metrology research system and the challenges it is facing.
Contributions will feed in the preparation work for a potential successor initiative of EMRP (European Metrology Research programme) under Horizon 2020.
