The evitherm project


Aims of evitherm

The aim of the evitherm project is to improve the uptake of good thermal practice in industry by ensuring that appropriate temperature and thermophysical properties information and expertise are readily available and easily accessible to industrial and research organisations, both large and small.

The project aims to develop a website and associated dissemination mechanisms that will:

  • be recognised as the authoritative thermal knowledge transfer focal point
  • disseminate new thermal measurement techniques and best practice
  • provide a forum for interchange of ideas & knowledge
  • identify the thermal needs and capabilities of users
  • facilitate collaborative R&D projects between users
  • enable feedback on the needs of industry to assist governments and other funding bodies in formulating their measurements and standards programmes.

EC project team

The part-EC funded project to create evitherm was coordinated by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and involved 4 other Principal Contractors - namely PTB, LNE and CNR-IMGC, the National Metrology Institutes of Germany, France, Austria and Italy respectively, and the Austrian Research Centers, Seibersdorf. In total 40 organisations, including universities, other centres of technical excellence and SMEs from 12 European nations, signed up to participate in this project.
