Measurement Science for Emerging Technologies program

Emerging technologies face significant impediments to market entry when adequate metrology is not in place to support them. The Measurement Science for Emerging Technologies (MSET) program fosters national innovation and the responsible introduction of new measurement technologies into the marketplace.

The MSET program addresses critical issues facing Canada and the global economy when new technology solutions are required, where conventional measurement approaches do not apply and where existing metrology capabilities are limited. In support of these goals, the program deploys extreme measurement capabilities and formulates new measurement science standards to strengthen Canada's national measurement system by ensuring that it is poised to address the needs of tomorrow's economy.
