LGC announces European measurement science funding success

18 Aug 2016
LGC, in its role as the UK National Measurement Laboratory and Designated Institute for chemical and bio-measurement, has won approximately €1.35m of European measurement science funding to address the grand challenge of ‘metrology for health’.

The €1.35m funding over the next three years was granted for 3 of the proposals LGC submitted, two of which we are leading. Working collaboratively with the top European NMIs, these projects will address some of the most challenging measurement issues facing diagnosis and management of neurodegenerative diseases and the detection, monitoring and evaluation of antimicrobial resistance.

The successful projects, which started early this summer, are:

• “Innovative measurements for improved diagnosis and management of neurodegenerative disease” (LGC is project coordinator)

• “Novel materials and methods for the detection, traceable monitoring and evaluation of antimicrobial resistance” (LGC is project coordinator)

• “Role of metals and metal containing bio molecules in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease” (LGC is leading a work package)

The European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) is the main programme for European research on measurement science and is funded by the European Commission.
