We are delighted to bring together leading expertise globally to an open forum for focused presentations and discussions on Precision Engineering for Sustainable Energy Systems.
Dr Jörn Stenger
Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), DE and EURAMET chairperson elect
EURAMET’s strategy and research programmes for sustainable energy systems and Green Deal
Presently, the proposal for EURAMET’s new metrology research programme, the European Partnership on Metrology, is under discussion in the Council and the European Parliament. Expecting their co-decision by the end of 2021, EURAMET already started the first call with focus on metrology for the Green Deal. The Partnership on Metrology will be a programme similar to EMPIR with calls from 2021 to 2027 and a comparable budget. The programme objectives are in line with the new EURAMET 2030 strategy. There are similarities to EMPIR, like thematic calls around industrial needs, health, fundamental and prenormative research, but also key differences: the thematic priorities on Green Deal and digitalisation, the role of regulation, and the aim to establish sustainable European Metrology Networks.
The presentation will discuss EURAMET’s strategy and opportunities under the Partnership on Metrology with a focus on sustainable energy systems.
Jörn Stenger studied physics at the University of Heidelberg and did his doctorate at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg on an experimental topic in nuclear and particle physics. After two postdoc years, inter alia from 1997 to 1999 at DESY in Hamburg he went to the MIT, Cambridge, USA, and worked in the group of Prof. Wolfgang Ketterle on Bose-Einstein condensates. In 1999 Jörn Stenger joined PTB and developed a frequency comb based on a titanium-sapphire femtosecond laser and measured the frequencies of the optical standards on the basis of calcium atoms and an ytterbium ion. Jörn Stenger became Member of the Presidential Board in 2009. He is delegate for Germany in EURAMET and he was chairman of the Research Program Committee of EURAMET from 2010 to end of 2015. He will become the Chairperson of EURAMET in June 2021.
