CAPACITY BUILDING in Technical and Scientific Organizations USING REGIONAL EXPERIENCES AND KNOWLEDGE (CABUREK)

 

Background
"CABUREK” is an instrument developed and implemented in cooperation between SIM, OAS and PTB. In its first two program cycles (2009-2014), the instrument was known as “NMI-Metrology User Relations” and aimed at enhancing competitiveness and innovation through the strengthening of the NMI’s relations with metrology users and a wider, better and more efficient use of the capabilities of the NMIs in Latin America and the Caribbean by industry, commerce, regulators and other users.

 

In the framework of the MEDEA 2.0 project by PTB which started in 2018, the tool is now introduced in the Asia-Pacific region.


“The basic concept of this tool is that exchanging regional knowledge and experience makes it easier to solve challenges countries are faced with at a national level. The tool consists of a Programme6 that works simultaneously at the regional and the national level. It is based on the productive exchange of experiences and resources, which is achieved by working in groups made up of representatives from the Institutions that adhere to the initiative. The tool proposes and encourages a joint working method that allows each participating Institution to make progress towards solving any of their national issues, with the support of a range of resources. While doing so, the Institution is in turn transformed into a support resource for other Institutions.”
