Constant evolution of the International System of Units

Celebrate World Metrology Day 2018

It's World Metrology Day on 20 May 2018. This year's theme is 'constant evolution of the International System of Units'.

The theme was chosen because in November 2018, the General Conference on Weights and Measures is expected to agree one of the largest changes to the International System of Units (SI) since its inception.

A number of projects within EURAMET's European Metrology Research Programmes have contributed to this important development.
