Proposal on the participation of the Union in the European Partnership on Metrology
On 23 February 2021, the European Commission adopted its proposal for a DECISION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on the participation of the Union in the European Partnership on Metrology jointly undertaken by several Member States.
Metrology was acknowledged by the co-legislators as one of the priority areas identified for possible Institutionalised European Partnerships based on Article 185 or Article 187 TFEU under the Horizon Europe Regulation. The present proposal for a European Metrology Partnership builds on the lessons learnt from the European metrology research programme (EMRP) and the European metrology programme on innovation and research (EMPIR). However, the present initiative represents a new partnership to meet new challenges. It is not intended as a mere continuation of previous programmes.
