EUROLAB celebrates the World Metrology Day 2021

Metrology, the science of measurement, has played and will keep playing a key role in scientific discovery and innovation, quality of life, industrial manufacturing and international trade. The theme for this year is "Measurement for Health".

World Metrology Day is an annual celebration of the signature of the Metre Convention on 20 May 1875, a key event that set the framework for global collaboration in the science of measurement. The World Metrology Day project is realized jointly by the BIPM and the OIML.
