The Standards, Measurement and Testing (SMT) Programme is one of the specific programmes which make up the European Union's Fourth Framework Programme (1994-1998) for research and technological development (RTD). It aims to promote the development of the harmonised system of accurate, reproducible and repeatable measurements, analyses, tests and written standards that is necessary in order to: (i) improve the competitiveness of all sectors of European industry; (ii) support the implementation of Community policy; (iii) meet the needs of society. The programme is divided into three themes: Theme I - Measurements for quality European products, including written standards for industry; Theme II - Research related to written standards and technical support to trade; Theme III - Measurements related to the needs of society.
