The project EMPIR Met4FoF has successfully finished its first quarter and has made very good progress and the first 9 months. This post outlines a couple of the early developments and preliminary results. Overall, this first period laid the foundation for a further successful development of the project.
During a two-day project meeting at NPL, UK in January 2019, the project consortium made a number of important decisions that pave the way for the next steps in the project.
In order to ensure the practical uptake of the project outcomes by industrial end users, a Stakeholder Advisory Board is formed jointly with SmartCom. During the kick-off meeting the first three Letter of Agreement where signed with TNO (Netherlands), SPEKTRA (Germany) and Myna-Project (Italy). Since then a couple more followed and the list keeps growing.
The two EMPIR projects – SmartCom and Met4FoF – held their joint kick-off meeting mid-June at PTB Brunswick, Germany. With almost 80 attendees from all over Europe and partners from Asia, the meeting was a great success and marked the beginning of a very fruitful collaboration.
