Who we are?

A globalized international economy calls for globalized metrology. This is why the orientation and impact of PTB (Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt), the national metrology institute of Germany, is not restricted to the national borders. PTB with its 1,900 staff members is rather a „global player“ in the world of metrology and faces the responsibility involved for society, economy and science. The international tasks of PTB include cooperation in all kinds of metrological organizations (the Meter Convention being the most prominent example) and cooperation with national metrology institutes all over the world. Furthermore, the PTB International Technical Cooperation advises and supports the conceptual design and practical implementation in the establishment of the Quality Infrastructure (QI) in developing and transition countries. The clients of the Technical Cooperation projects are above all the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ, Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung), which finances the majority of projects with PTB participation, but also the European Union, the World Bank and other organizations. For the implementation of projects a network of strategic partners is available. All in all, the global networking of PTB has one major objective: the international harmonization of quality infrastructure and its mutual acceptance.

The aim of this Extranet is to facilitate communication and cooperation in the context of PTB projects aimed to strenghten the Quality Infrastructure (QI) worldwide and to offer a platform for exchange to the QI Community in general.
