Into the Future with Metrology - The Challenges of Digitalization

Joint IMEKO TC6 and OIML DTG online seminar on blockchain technologies in metrology

In recent years, several initiatives have been started to investigate the potential use of distributed ledger, also known as blockchain, technologies in metrology. Proposed applications range from making traceability in calibration hierarchies more transparent and efficient to distributed infrastructures for processes in the quality infrastructure.

The Opens external link in new windowIMEKO TC6 "Digitalisation" and the Opens external link in new windowOIML "Digitalisation Task Group" jointly organized an online seminar on this topic on 29th March 2023 11 - 14 UTC.

The aim is to bring together experts and interested colleagues from metrology, legal metrology and the general quality infrastructure for an exchange and discussion on this topic. It is also intend to take this webinar as a starting point for a regular exchange aiming for a harmonization and interoperability of developments in the long run.
