Scope of the conference

The conference aimed at mapping out the current and upcoming measurement and testing needs for which challenging demands on reference materials are envisaged. Forward-looking presentations assessed the scientific and technological demands and developments for the design, preparation and certification of such measurement standards. The conference was organised under the auspices of the Belgian Presidency of the EU.

The conference opened with the official inauguration ceremony (watch the video) of the new reference materials productions building at JRC-IRMM.
