The Board of Directors (BoD) is EURAMET’s governing body, responsible for the execution of decisions taken by the General Assembly. The BoD consists of the three Chairpersons and six members elected by the General Assembly. The terms of José Ángel Robles Carbonell (CEM) and Jan C. Petersen (DFM) ended in May 2017. 

EURAMET expresses its sincere thanks to Jan and José for their commitment and invaluable support.

José Ángel Robles Carbonell, Centro Espanol de Metrologia (CEM)

José was member of the Board of Directors from 2011 to 2017. “It has been an honour and a great personal experience being involved in the activities of the BoD in the last six years. Especially in this interesting time for EURAMET.” 

José studied industrial engineering at the Politécnica University of Madrid and joined the Spanish National Metrology Institute, Centro Español de Metrología, as laboratory engineer in 1984. Since 2007 he has been director of CEM’s scientific division and was involved in the national development of scientific and legal metrology, regulation, standardisation and accreditation. He has supported the EURAMET community for many years and from 2007 to 2017 he was the Spanish EURAMET Delegate. In addition, he is the Spanish representative in many national and international committees.

“For me metrology is not only a science or a job, it is part of my life since I joined the metrology community in 1984. In the Board of Directors I collaborated with excellent colleagues and friends and learned from all of them. At the same time, I tried to support EURAMET and its members with my experience and inputs.”

Jan C. Petersen, Danish Fundamental Metrology (DFM)

Jan was member of the Board of Directors from 2013 to 2017. Jan is photonics group manager at DFM and as a member of the management team he plays an important role in the strategic development of the institute and in attracting external research funding as well as commercial research. 

Jan studied physics at the University of Copenhagen and obtained a PhD degree in physical chemistry from the University of Bristol. He joined DFM in 1990. Jan’s engagement for EURAMET started in 1990 as Danish Contact Person in the Technical Committee for Photometry and Radiometry. During the period 1994 to 1998 he was EUROMET Secretary. Since 2009 he has been the Danish EURAMET Delegate.

“As BoD member I very much appreciated the diversity of subjects and fields that had to be addressed. I enjoyed working with colleagues coming from different fields of metrology and having different backgrounds, which resulted in very lively discussions. The major topics I was involved in were quality assurance where I worked closely with the Quality Manager and the secretariat to ensure that documents were fit for the EURAMET quality system and, as member of the BoD Core Group, providing guidance in putting together the Strategic Research Agenda for Metrology in Europe.”
