The training aims in improving the knowledge of the laboratory staff in EURAMET NMI/DIs on measurement uncertainty in static volume measurement. It will provide participants with an overview – refreshment of the theoretical background and basic principles of measurement uncertainty determination, including application in conformity assessment, followed by a deeper insight into determination of measurement uncertainty in three most frequent fields of static volume measurement

Who should attend 
Less experienced volume measurement experts from EURAMET NMI/DIs, others depending upon places available and on invitation.Participant are expected to have knowledge of statistics related to uncertainty determination.
