Prolongement de l'initiative commune au BIPM et à TÜBİTAK UME

The BIPM is delighted to extend the collaborative initiative BIPM–TÜBİTAK UME Project Placements for two more cycles in 2024 and 2025. Following the success of the previous six cycles, this extension presents compelling opportunities for metrologists globally. Applications for the seventh cycle (2024) are currently open until 12 May 2024, and successful applicants will be notified by 31 May 2024. The training sessions are set to commence on 2 September 2024.

This joint initiative by the BIPM and the National Metrology Institute of Türkiye (TÜBİTAK UME) offers metrologists the chance to delve into specific subjects of interest within TÜBİTAK UME's laboratories. Apart from fostering professional development and setting the stage for future collaborations, the program allows participants to enhance their comprehension of CIPM MRA mechanisms through e-learning training and seminars led by experts from both institutions.

Since its launch in 2018, the initiative has hosted fifty-six talented metrologists from thirty-one national metrology institutes, representing all regional metrology organizations. Each cycle, lasting from 1 to 3 months at the TÜBİTAK UME laboratories, covers diverse activities, tailored to individual needs. These activities span a wide spectrum, from diminishing measurement uncertainties to refining measurement methods and contributing to research endeavors. Feedback from participants highlights the substantial value of these placements in advancing both theoretical and practical metrological knowledge.

We extend our sincere gratitude to TÜBİTAK UME (Türkiye) for their invaluable contributions to the BIPM Capacity Building and Knowledge Transfer (CBKT) Program.

We successfully concluded the 6th cycle of the BIPM-TÜBİTAK UME Project Placement Programme with 10 participants from 10 different countries by December 2023. We are delighted with the collaborative efforts put forth by TÜBİTAK UME researchers and the program participants. Our pride lies in the continuous evolution of our services, progressing from basic training to more sophisticated on-the-job training concepts. This involves participants in advanced experimental work on cutting-edge subjects. The positive feedback received has heightened our motivation, reinforcing our belief in the impact of our efforts on the global metrological system.
