New Measurement Network to encourage innovation throughout the UK
Businesses and universities across the UK can sign up to access the most up to date measurement knowledge and research to add weight to their work and help new ideas flourish.

The UK’s  National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is launching its new Measurement Network to provide comprehensive access to the latest measurement science. It brings together nineteen existing NPL knowledge transfer clubs and networks into a central hub – making it easier for a wide range of stakeholders to engage with NPL and for new groups to develop as technologies change.

The Network is designed to stimulate innovation in the UK by providing easy access to world-class measurement knowledge and expertise through a single network. By uniting existing groups under a single banner, NPL will be able to provide a more efficient and coordinated service for stakeholders including industrial partners, SMEs, universities and manufacturers.

The new network will provide targeted events and information for members. This will disseminate the latest research and knowledge from NPL in the sectors that are most relevant to each member.

Key markets and user communities will be invited to collaborate with NPL to provide measurement input into other fora such as the Knowledge Transfer Networks, building links to maximise reach and impact.
Measurement Network members will also have the opportunity to influence the research that NPL undertakes by setting the direction that the network should take, thereby addressing the measurement challenges facing industry.
