The European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) is the successor programme to the EMRP.

EMPIR launched on 3 February 2014 with a call for Potential Research Topics to address the needs of Industry.

This represents a significant opportunity for NPL and industry to work together on contracted research over a fixed timescale, in order to deliver true value and impact to the industrial community.
