EURAMET Anniversary | eNewsletter Issue 7 | 11 January 2017

Happy EURAMET anniversary!

Today is EURAMET's birthday as it was inaugurated on 11 January 2007.
20 years earlier, in 1987, its predecessor EUROMET was founded. For 30 years EURAMET and EUROMET have worked for closer collaboration and innovation in metrology.

That is why EURAMET celebrates 20+10=30 years of collaboration in European metrology this year.

On behalf of EURAMET we would like to thank everyone - current and former members, friends, partners and stakeholders - who contributed to the successful development of EUROMET and EURAMET and who made this association so special and successful.

An exciting anniversary year lies ahead of us and we look forward to celebrating with you in 2017.
