Metrology for optical and RF communication systems

Workpackage leader: Mark Bieler, PTB

Other participants: NPL, CMI, LNE, METAS, AGILENT Germany, DASSAULT, EXFO, REG(TU Delft), REG(UR1)

  • Knowledge Transfer will be undertaken on multiple levels to reach the academic research community, practicing engineers and business. An advisory board will be set up and newsletters will be distributed regularly. Publication activities (technical journal and trade journal publications as well as conference presentations) are in the focus, but standardisation activities will be addressed, too.
  • Training and dissemination: Results of the JRP will also be disseminated at a national level. Such local language conferences and technical meetings are often informal allowing greater discussion and the incorporation of training elements. Targeted stakeholders are mainly industrial users and calibration laboratories. Moreover, taking advantage of new media, web courses have the potential to reach a very broad audience, not accessible by local meetings or even international conferences.
  • Exploitation: The knowledge generated will consist of two different types: open knowledge that any interested party will have access to and benefit from and which will be disseminated freely; and specific knowledge developed by JRP-Participants. The potential for commercialisation of the results will be carefully investigated. Possible new calibration service capabilities might result from all technical workpackages.

The research within this EURAMET joint research project receives funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme, ERA-NET Plus, under Grant Agreement No. 217257.
