MATHMET

The European Centre for
Mathematics and Statistics in Metrology

What is MATHMET?

MATHMET is the network of European organizations considering
  • the importance of mathematical and statistical methods for the work of Government, commerce and industry, the enforcement of law, the maintenance of public health, the protection of the environment and the manufacture of quality products,
  • that modern metrology requires expert knowledge of and relates on further advances in applied mathematics, statistics, numerical computation and related state-of-the-art computational tools,
  • that many applications of mathematics and statistics in metrology comprise key tasks like uncertainty evaluation, analysis of key comparison, conformity assessment and decision making, or determination of fundamental constants, which require an international consensus and harmonization of methods.

The aims of MATHMET are to
  • undertake fundamental and pre-normative collaborative research in the field of mathematics and statistics for metrology, building new capabilities to meet the future requirements of measurement science, targeted towards support for the SI and traceability, industrial innovation and societal challenges such as environment and climate change, energy and sustainability, health, security and well-being.
  • provide services for the metrology community to meet current requirement for mathematical and statistical capabilities.
  • promote scientific collaboration between NMIs and provide a joint portal for cooperation with third parties, e.g., industry, academia, regulatory and standardization bodies, through joint research projects (including EMPIR, HORIZON 2020 projects).

MATHMET has been established as an outcome of the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP) project NEW04 "Novel mathematical and statistical approaches to uncertainty evaluation" (2011-2014). The EMRP is jointly funded by the EMRP participating countries within EURAMET and the European Union. Its successor since 2015 is the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR). The EMPIR initiative is co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the EMPIR Participating States.

The MATHMET Memorandum of Understanding, signed by its members, and the Rules of Procedure give further details on the organisation and implementation of MATHMET.
