|Abstract:||This paper focuses on past, current and ready-to-start time and frequency metrology projects taking place in Europe and aimed at time and frequency transfer in optical fiber. It addresses both EURAMET and H2020 scope projects. We also briefly describe the involvement of National Research Networks (NRENs). As the operation of dedicated optical fiber infrastructure is very expensive, NMIs started to cooperate with NRENs that operate own optical data networks and can provide part of the optical spectrum for time and frequency applications. Horizon 2020 is the European Union framework programme for research and innovation. One of its goals is to reinforce and extend the excellence of the EU's science base and to consolidate the European research area to make the research and innovation system more competitive on a global scale. Horizon 2020 also supports several metrology projects, either directly or in cooperation with the association EURAMET. Horizon 2020, as the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme is scheduled for 7 years (2014 to 2020) and has budget of 80 billion € for projects funding.|
