A Virtual World Metrology Day 2020

20 May 2020 | WEBINAR 1:00 - 2:30 pm

World Metrology Day is an annual celebration to mark the signing of the Metre Convention in 1875, which set the framework for global collaboration in the science of measurement.  Metrology plays a central role in scientific discovery and innovation, industrial manufacturing and international trade, improving the quality of life and protecting the global environment.   

This annual celebration acknowledges the global measurement infrastructure that exists today, 145 years on from the first countries signing the Metre Convention. The theme for World Metrology Day 2020 is Measurements for global trade.

We invite you to watch our pre-recorded talks from 15 May on the MSL YouTube channel(external link) , send us your questions prior to the event and then join us virtually on 20 May for live discussion and Q&A sessions.
