The projects in which TÜBİTAK UME participated in the scope of 2019 calls of "European Metrology Program for Innovation and Research" (EMPIR) funded by the European Commission, started to be carried out.
Start of one of the 11 projects (4 on Energy, 3 on Normative, 2 on Environment and 2 on Research Network calls), that TUBITAK UME participates as a partner, has just initiated in May 2020. Remaining 10 projects will be started in the forthcoming months.
Titles of 11 projects that TÜBİTAK UME participated are as follows:
• Metrology of magnetic losses in electrical steel sheets for high-efficiency energy conversion (HEFMAG)
• Metrology for future energy transmission (FutureEnergy)
• Metrology for emerging PV applications (Metro-PV)
• New metrological methods for biofuel materials analysis (BIOFMET)
• Metrology for climate relevant volatile organic compounds (MetClimVOC)
• Stable Isotope metrology to enable climate action and regulation (STELLAR)
• Support for standardisation of high voltage testing with composite and combined wave shapes (HV-com²)
• Measurement methods and test procedures for assessing accuracy of instrument transformers for power quality measurements (IT4PQ)
• Revision and extension of standards for test methods for LED lamps, luminaires and modules (RevStdLED)
• Supporting the development of European Metrology Network on Quantum (EMN-Quantum)
• Support for a European Metrology Network on Advanced Manufacturing (AdvManuNet)
The EMPIR program launched following iMERA, iMERA + and EMRP programs, will end in 2024 with the latest calls announced in 2020. It is envisaged that the projects will continue to be supported by the European Partnership on Metrology (EMP) which is designed within the scope of the Horizon Europe program, that is planned to be started in 2021 following Horizon 2020.
