World Metrology Day dedicated to “Measurements for health”

This year’s World Metrology Day is dedicated to “Measurements for health”, a theme meant to create awareness about the important role that measurement plays in health, and thus in the wellbeing of every one of us. On this occasion’s workshop we are thrilled to welcome colleagues from the SCIENSANO and CEN∙SCK institutes, who will talk about recent metrological developments in the fields of food & nutrition and radiation dosimetry for health applications.

This year’s World Metrology Day is dedicated to “Measurements for health”, a theme meant to create awareness about the important role that measurement plays in health, and thus in the wellbeing of every one of us. On this occasion’s workshop we are thrilled to welcome colleagues from the SCIENSANO and CEN∙SCK institutes, who will talk about recent metrological developments in the fields of food & nutrition and radiation dosimetry for health applications. Next, members of the Belgian National Metrology Institute (SMD) will depict examples of their metrological endeavours in the service of health. The following slot in the agenda is dedicated to our guests, whom we encourage to present their projects either through the intermediary of a few slides or by simply stating their news. The workshop will end with round table discussions about the mainstream metrological trends and future challenges.
