Enver Sadikoğlu is new chair of TC Acoustics, Ultrasound and Vibration

Enver Sadikoğlu (UME, Turkey) started his new term as chair of EURAMET’s Technical Committee (TC) for Acoustics, Ultrasound and Vibration at the association’s 2021 General Assembly.

Enver’s sustained diligence is well known within the EURAMET community. In addition to being EURAMET’s Quality Manager since 2009, he served as chair of the Technical Committee (TC) for Acoustics, Ultrasound and Vibration (AUV) from 2005 to 2009 and of TC Quality from 2014 to 2018. Enver’s scientific interests spread from the realisation of the national standards for unit of sound pressure by reciprocity technique and the unit of liner acceleration by laser interferometry, to the development of non-traditional methods for sound pressure measurements. Having authored more than 100 scientific papers published in peer reviewed journals and proceedings of (inter)national conferences, he currently acts as a referee and reviewer for the journals Metrologia, Measurement and the Turkish Journal of Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences.

Enver graduated from the Physics Department of Baku State University in 1991 and subsequently joined TÜBİTAK UME, the Turkish National Metrology Institute, as a researcher. In 2001 he received a PhD degree from the Institute of Photoelectronics of the Azerbaijan Academy of Sciences. Besides serving as head of the Acoustics, Ultrasound and Vibration laboratory at UME, he coordinated the establishment of the institute’s quality management system and has been leading the institutional quality management board since 2007.

Enver has been the representative of his institute on the CIPM Consultative Committee for Acoustics, Ultrasound and Vibration (CCAUV) for more than 20 years and a member of the Strategic Planning Working Group of the CCAUV, acting as its vice chair since 2019.

During his new term as TC-AUV chair, Enver will focus on supporting emerging National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) and Designated Institutes (DIs) to establish strong capabilities in AUV metrology. By raising awareness of the role that AUV technologies play in numerous areas, including health, environmental monitoring or condition monitoring of machinery, he intends to advocate for participation of the AUV community in multidisciplinary joint research projects. Moreover, Enver wishes to build and maintain strong links between TC-AUV and the European Metrology Networks to foster common interests and knowledge development. From an organisational view the TC-AUV community could envisage the creation of dedicated subgroups to tackle the numerous tasks, including development of roadmaps for future strategic research and creating impact.

“This revised organisation could enhance the team spirit and stimulate the commitment of the AUV members”, Enver said.

Referring to the TC-AUV perspective of EURAMET‘s digital transformation agenda he further commented:

“On one hand, our community is strongly receptive to the implementation of digital calibration certificates (DCCs) as large amounts of data are generated during the calibration process in the AUV field (e.g. digital sensing systems and digital transducers). On the other hand, it is imperative that the calibration and testing of such tools become internationally standardised (format, metrics, terminology and protocols) under ISO and IEC. The DCCs are unquestionably going to play a crucial role in this context, where a coordination of development efforts - at the European as well as global level - is mandatory to avoid work redundancy and waste of resources. In this light, I believe that EURAMET’s Technical Committees should combine efforts with the TC-IM WG on Metrology for Digital Transformation and the TC-IM 1448 project,  and put forward proposals to be revised by interested parties. By consulting all concerned communities from an early stage, more awareness will be raised, allowing to better overcome related challenges”.

EURAMET wishes Enver every success in his new role and extends its sincere thanks to his predecessor Stephen Robinson (NPL, UK), who held the position from 2017 to 2021.
