World Metrology Day

20 May marks the annual celebration of World Metrology Day.

This year’s theme is 'Measurements supporting the global food system'. Providing access to safe and sustainable food is a major global challenge and reliable measurements are required to support its trade, standards, safety, production, and processing.


At EURAMET, the measurement challenges related to the global food system are addressed by Technical Committees, European Metrology Networks and collaborative research projects.



New portal showcases benefits from metrology research

The measurement solutions developed by collaborative projects within EURAMET’s Metrology Research Programmes are used by companies across Europe and around the world to fulfil their measurement needs.
