World Metrology Day

World Metrology Day is an international annual event that marks the signing of the Metre Convention on 20 May 1875. The Metre Convention created the International Bureau of Weights and Measures and set the framework for global collaboration in the science of measurement and its application in industry, science and society. The theme for World Metrology Day 2016 is ‘Measurements in a dynamic world'.

In recognition of World Metrology Day, NMI created two perpetual awards:

  • The Barry Inglis Medal is an annual award that acknowledges and celebrates outstanding achievement in measurement research and/or excellence in practical measurements by an individual (or group) in the fields of academia, research or industry in Australia. This achievement may be in the form of a single major contribution or a body of work developed throughout a career. The medal is named in honour of Dr Barry Inglis, NMI’s inaugural Chief Executive and Chief Metrologist. Prior to taking up this position, Dr Inglis was the Director of CSIRO’s National Measurement Laboratory.

  • The NMI Prize is an annual award that acknowledges and celebrates outstanding achievement in measurement research and/or excellence in practical measurements by a young individual working in academia, research or industry in Australia. This prize is reserved specifically for nomination by young Australians as a means of promoting measurement science and fostering it's application and techniques in innovative fields.
