Take part in an online questionnaire for the TC-IM’s new digitalisation-focused working group
Digital technologies are becoming more and more intertwined into our daily lives. As digitalisation rapidly accelerates across the world, metrology communities are faced with the challenge of identifying measurement topics, fields and activities needed to meet the growing demands of a digitally-transformed society.
EURAMET’s Technical Committee for Interdisciplinary Metrology (TC-IM) - which was set up to provide a forum for discussing general metrological issues related to all technical fields - hosted a workshop in October 2019 for metrology experts working in digitalisation fields. This workshop, held at SMD in Brussels, Belgium, enabled participants to present the digital themes within their respective institutions. Workshop outcomes have since paved the way for the establishment of a new, expert working group focused on metrology for digitalisation (TC-IM WG M4D).
Take part in online survey
Currently, the new group is preparing a proposal for EURAMET that outlines its strategic topics, tasks and key activities – to provide an underpinning metrological infrastructure that will support Europe’s sustainable growth and increase confidence in data & algorithms. The group has also recently set up an online questionnaire, with the purpose of collecting information about digital metrology challenges and gaining the critical insight of metrology institutes, research organisations and other key stakeholders.
Sascha Eichstaedt, the new convenor of the working group, comments:
“Confidence in measured data – and its use – is greatly important for successful digitalisation. The expert working group is aiming to ensure that EURAMET remains the key enabler for its stakeholders in the digital transformation. The questionnaire is an important part of this work and will help the expert group to form a coherent picture of the needs and possibilities for EURAMET in this age of digital transformation."
EURAMET invites experts from European metrology institutes, staff members from metrology-related companies, and stakeholders from industry or scientific fields, to participate in this questionnaire.
If you would like to contribute to shaping the working group’s central objectives, take part in the questionnaire today: link to questionnaire.
Please note the questionnaire will close on Monday, 20 April 2020.
