Below are some European projects relevant to thermal expansion and density. (For a more complete listing also covering other thermal properties search for projects under Services.)

Projects help industrial organisations, particularly SMEs, to learn about industrial research being carried out, to have opportunities for collaboration, or simply to benefit from the resulting knowledge transfer activities.
