BIPM and TÜBİTAK UME joint CBKT initiative: launch of the sixth cycle in 2023
The call for applications to the sixth cycle of the joint initiative “BIPM–TÜBİTAK UME project placements” has been launched and is open until 30 April 2023. The project placement training for the sixth cycle will start in September 2023.
This initiative, organized by the BIPM and the National Metrology Institute of Türkiye (TÜBİTAK UME), is designed to provide opportunities for metrologists to gain in-depth knowledge and experience by conducting research on a subject of their interest in TÜBİTAK UME's laboratories. In addition, participants are able to expand their understanding of the international aspects of metrology through intensive CIPM MRA e learning opportunities and seminars.
The initiative is aimed at young metrologists regardless of their level of experience of metrology.
Successful completion of cycle five (2022)
In 2022, the joint initiative hosted ten talented metrologists from ten different countries for a period of 1 to 3 months at the TÜBİTAK UME laboratories. The geographical coverage in this cycle was wider than in previous cycles, welcoming participants from all RMOs; AFRIMETS, APMP, COOMET, EURAMET, GULFMET and SIM.
The reports received from the participants on completion of their placements demonstrated that the projects they performed met their expectations. Their research projects covered a diverse range of subjects from decreasing the uncertainty of measurement standards through to expanding metrological capabilities in the laboratory to underpin scientific activities, healthcare, and industry.
We would like to offer our sincere thanks to TÜBİTAK UME (Türkiye) for this joint initiative, and the valuable contribution towards strengthening the BIPM Capacity Building and Knowledge Transfer (CBKT) Programme.
