Happy Europe Day!
Today Europe is celebrating Europe Day and between 23 and 26 May, the European Union will be holding its parliamentary elections - an opportunity to both illustrate and strengthen its cooperation and partnership and undertake world-leading programmes.
Collaboration is similarly vital for any scientific project, and no great discovery is achieved by one person or institute alone. To all our members, from Iceland to Malta, we’d like to say thank you for continued collaboration and contributions to enhancing measurement science and creating impact through research excellence. Happy Europe Day! read more >>
