125 years precisely

Since its founding in 1887, the keyword which has stayed with PTB (at that time: Physikalisch-Technische Reichsanstalt, PTR) is: accuracy. More precisely: measurement accuracy. After a 125-year success story, PTB will be celebrating its anniversary on 28 March 2012 (on the very same day it was granted its first imperial budget 125 years ago) with a political ceremonial event in the Braunschweiger Stadthalle (Braunschweig Civic Centre) and a scientific symposium scheduled on the day before with the significant title “Metrology, the Universe and Everything”.
