Focus Topic: Capacity Building

EURAMET has always encouraged cooperation and knowledge transfer among its members and associates to develop an integrated metrology system for Europe. Since 2011, EURAMET has solidified its focus on capacity building activities to improve the research and operational capabilities of its member institutes.

Using EMPIR research potential projects, human and institutional capacity building training courses and researcher mobility grants, EURAMET’s capacity building strategy has started to take shape.
