    On 23 November, a new scientific facility to develop measurement standards in challenging areas such as life sciences was inaugurated at JRC-IRMM in Geel, Belgium. The new facility will be used to develop and produce reference materials, which possess a precisely-known property and are the basis for complex measurements, such as the amount of genetically modified maize or the number of bacteria in a food sample. The total cost of the facility was 11 M€ – of which 4.5 M€ was funded from revenue from JRC's reference material activities.
