EMPIR Partnering Meetings 2017 at PTB Berlin

General information

The partnering meetings in Berlin 27th to 30th of June were held on the premises of PTB Berlin. Due to the larger number of SRTs the meeting has been split into two blocks with subsequent time windows.

Block 1:   27 June, 13:00, until 28 June, ~15:30
Block 2:   29 June, 13:00, until 30 June, ~15:30

  • Participation via virtual media was not possible
  • A training session (~ 3 hours) on EMPIR projects for all interested parties has been given by a representative of the MSU in the morning before each of the two meeting blocks.

The partnering meetings were financially supported by the Opens external link in new windowHelmholtz Fonds e.V.


Meetings SRT-f01, SRT-f03, SRT-f15 and SRT-i08 were organised independently.

Still open for SRT-f01 and SRT-f15. Registration and contact see below.

Meals (meetings 27th to 30th of June)

For the meetings 27 - 30 June 2017:

In order to have efficient meetings refreshments, a light dinner (first day) and a lunchtime snack (second day) will be organized on the PTB premises for each block. A conference fee of 75 € per block is asked to cover the costs for meals and refreshments (cf. registration).



The period of registration for the partnering meetings in Berlin (27 - 30 June 2017) and SRT-f03 and SRT-i08has expired on 19th of June!

Nevertheless, the registration tool will be available until 26th of June 8 o'clock. But place in specific meetings cannot be guaranteed from now on due to great demand and limited space. Same is true for unannounced appearances at the meetings.
