Parliament backs metrology partnership within Horizon Europe
On 11 November 2021, the European Parliament adopted the European partnership on metrology. The scheme, informally agreed with the Council of Ministers, is funded by Horizon Europe and builds on the successes of the previous European initiatives European metrology research programme (EMRP) and European metrology programme on innovation and research (EMPIR). The partnership aims to accelerate Europe's global leadership in metrology research by establishing autonomous European metrology networks to support and stimulate new innovative products, address societal challenges and enable the effective design and implementation of regulations and standards that underpin public policies.
As a next step, the partnership regulation has to be officially adoped by the Council of Ministers.
