Why measurement?

Reliable measurements support the development of nano, quantum and bio technologies and help society meet grand challenges relating to health, energy, security and climate. Measurements ensure global markets remain fair and transparent, and companies developing new products and services rely on measurements of their quantity, quality and performance to help commercialise them.
