Information, and upcoming events



The IMEKO 2022 General Council Sessions took place on the 27th and 28th of August at PTB Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, Berlin, Germany. Happy to announce that it was a very well-attended and successful event. Holding it in hybrid mode allowed the Technical Committees and Member Organisations to represent well with over 70 participants. The local organizers provided excellent service to the GC; special thanks to them.

Something new to this GC was the presentations from EUROLAB, SIM, APMP and EURAMET.
On the second day, PhD Cornelia Denz, the President of the German Institute PTB hosting the Sessions, warmly welcomed the IMEKO Community.
It was all so different from the last two years of solely online meetings. During the breaks, the time was well used to catch up and have personal conversations.
The new members, namely IMBIH, the Metrology Institute of Bosnia and Herzegovina and EMI, the United Arab Emirates, were warmly welcomed and are now official members. IMEKO became richer, with 65 new members to its Technical Committees and 12 new TC officers, all approved by the Technical Board and the General Council.
The Working Groups' recommendations were part of the TB report. There were short discussions, followed by voting for the best solutions. The "How to organize TC events" aims to aid event organizers. It contains summaries of necessary procedure handling and practical attachments to fill out. This allows smoother handling of event applications. The TB and TC functioning recommendations followed the recent much faster pace of the IMEKO operations. These reports are available on request at the Secretariat. The Working Groups will continue their activities. The first meetings are expected to take place in October. Anybody interested in joining is welcome; please contact the Secretariat for the details.
