20 May 2016 – World Metrology Day
World Metrology Day is an annual celebration organised by the International Bureau of Weights and Measurements (BIPM) and the International Organisation of Legal Metrology (OIML) to commemorate the signing of the Metre Convention in 1875 by representatives from all over the world. This convention allowed for the development of a ‘coherent measurement system worldwide that underpins scientific discovery and innovation, industrial manufacturing and international trade’ which is still in use today.
The theme of this year is ‘measurements in a dynamic world’ which looks at the challenges encountered both when measuring dynamic quantities and also more generally the ever-changing world of measurement science in today’s world.
