The lab of the future is driven by the fast changing new technologies and by the high demands of customers. It will probably change completely in appearance from the laboratories we know.

ABOUT US

Creation and Status of Eurolab

 

EUROLAB was created in Brussels on April 27, 1990 on the basis of a memorandum of understanding, signed by delegations representing the private and public laboratories of 17 out of the 19 countries of the EEC and EFTA.

EUROLAB is since October 1998 a legal entity in the form of an international association under Belgian law (A.I.S.B.L. - Association Internationale Scientifique sans But Lucratif) setting it as the European Federation of National Associations of Measurement, Testing and Analytical Laboratories.

Objectives

  • Representation by formulating and voicing the opinion of European laboratories regarding political and technical issues having a direct impact on their activity, both on the European scene and worldwide.
     

  • Coordination by interfacing with all European organisations having activities of interest to the laboratory community, and striving to avoid duplication of efforts and activities.
     

  • Action by providing adequate means for exchange of information and experience, such as the publication of our Position Papers, Technical Reports, Newsletter, Seminars, and Working Groups etc.
     

  • Promoting cost-effective testing, calibration and measurement services, for which the accuracy and quality assurance requirements should be adjusted to actual needs.
