International Cooperation

Group 9.3


The International Cooperation group of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt is an implementing organisation of development cooperation contracted by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the European Union. It promotes the improvement of the framework conditions for economic, social and ecological action and therefore supports developing and emerging countries in the development and use of a needs-based and internationally recognised quality infrastructure. A functioning quality infrastructure is indispensable for our daily lives because it enables free, fair and secure trade; a reliable health system; environmental protection; or the expansion of renewable energies.

PTB's International Cooperation group advises governments and ministries, promotes quality infrastructure institutions and supports small and medium-sized enterprises.
