One of the highlights in EURAMET's anniversary year is the publication of the anniversary booklet '30 years of collaboration in European metrology'. It is now available for download on EURAMET's website.
In 2017 EURAMET celebrates an important anniversary: On the 11 January 2007 EURAMET was founded and 20 years earlier, in 1987, its predecessor EUROMET was established therefore resulting in 30 years of successful collaboration in European metrology.
"EURAMET quickly came to the conclusion that an anniversary publication would be a good and lasting way to reflect on how far the metrology community has come," said Beat Jeckelmann, EURAMET Chairperson. "We were lucky enough to have Michael Kühne, former EUROMET and EURAMET Chairperson, as editor of the publication."
The success of EURAMET would not have been made possible without all the people who contributed to its development. Taking this into account, the anniversary publication has been written by 17 different authors; all of whom played an important role in EURAMET's history and present.
The Chairperson and editor have been given special support from EURAMET's anniversary team consisting of Maguelonne Chambon (Board of Directors Member), Janko Drnovšek (DI Contact), Duncan Jarvis (General Secretary), Wolfgang Schmid (Member Service Manager) and Anne Trumpfheller (Communications Officer).
"The anniversary booklet is the first document detailing the history of EURAMET. It describes how many visionary people contributed to a new idea of collaboration and made it a success," comments Michael Kühne. "The publication explains where EURAMET found its place in global metrology and developed something unique: The European Metrology Research Programme."
After 8 months of writing, editing, and designing, the 64-page booklet has now been published as part of EURAMET's anniversary symposium and World Metrology Day. It is written for all who contributed to the development of metrology in Europe, for members of the international measurement community and for those who are interested in getting a greater insight into measurement collaboration.
