The training aims in improving the knowledge of the laboratory staff in EURAMET NMI/DIs on calibration of various type of volume equipment, by the gravimetric and volumetric method. After one full day of theoretical lectures, three subsequent days will be devoted to practical work in laboratories for calibration of volumetric glassware, micropipettes and standard test measures.

Who should attend
Less experienced experts in volume metrology from EURAMET NMI/DIs. Participants are expected to have basic knowledge of volume measurements.

Programme highlights:

  • Day 1: Calibration procedures (lecture)
  • Day 2: Calibration of volumetric glassware (laboratory)
  • Day 3: Calibration of micropipettes (laboratory)
  • Day 4: Calibration of standards test measures (laboratory) by gravimetric and volumetric method

Lecturer at the workshop is Elsa Batista (IPQ)

Participants eligibility 
EURAMET NMIs and DIs; further participants according to places available and on invitation.
