On Sunday 7 October 2012, the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) in Geel, Belgium, opened its doors to the public, as part of the regional initiative, Open Bedrijvendag. The IRMM is one of the seven institutes of the Joint Research Centre – the European Commission’s in-house science service.

Visitors could learn about the world of measurement science by performing fun, interactive experiments, including extracting DNA from a kiwi, exploring the nano-scale and pitting the human senses against our sophisticated detection equipment.
Visitors could also enjoy a guided tour of our linear accelerator – a unique research facility in the world that is rarely open to the public. A ‘must’ for those with a passion for physics!

Visitors could also get acquainted with the activities of its neighbouring Flemish research institute VITO on sustainable production, energy, material and environmental technology. There were also information stands from the neighbouring European School Mol and Europa Direct Antwerp.
