EUROLAB supports the EMPIR Project for measurement uncertainty evaluation

The European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) has been developed as an integrated part of Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. 


EUROLAB is an official stakeholder in the EMPIR special project "Examples of Measurement Uncertainty Evaluation” (EMUE), which is focused on promoting uncertainty evaluation according to internationally recognized guides across broad disciplines of measurement.


The project provides a comprehensive set of examples illustrating how principles of measurement uncertainty evaluation can support documentary standards and guides. These examples and templates for uncertainty evaluation will be delivered to the Joint Committee for Guides in Metrology (JCGM) as publishers of the internationally acknowledged Guide to the expression of uncertainty in measurement (GUM).


The main objectives of EMUE are:


  • To develop examples of measurement uncertainty evaluations capable of acting as template solutions that end users can use for related problems.

  • To derive worked examples of uncertainty analyses using the GUM and other methods to assist users to make informed choices on an appropriate uncertainty evaluation method to use.

  • To collaborate with JCGM/WG1 (the chief stakeholder), and the standardization, regulatory and accreditation communities (ISO, IEC, OIML, and ILAC) to ensure that the outputs of the project are aligned with their needs, communicated quickly, and in a form that can readily be incorporated into the JCGM Guides and other documents.


More information on EMUE can be found here. The current compendium of already developed examples and templates is available here. A poster with additional information is viewable here.
