Extension of the joint BIPM and TÜBİTAK UME CBKT initiative – BIPM

The BIPM is pleased to announce the extension of the joint initiative “BIPM–TÜBİTAK UME project placements” for another two cycles, which will be delivered in 2022 and 2023. This extension follows the success of the previous four cycles.

This initiative, organized by the BIPM and the National Metrology Institute of Turkey (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.

Over four cycles of this initiative (from 2018 to 2021), the BIPM and TÜBİTAK UME have hosted thirty-seven talented metrologists from twenty-four countries for a period of 1 to 3 months at the TÜBİTAK UME laboratories. The reports received from the participants on completion of their placements have demonstrated that the projects were an extremely valuable method of knowledge transfer. The research projects have 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.

Participants and their mentors in the cycle four placements at the TÜBİTAK UME laboratories.

One of the key elements of this initiative is tailoring the knowledge transfer activities to the needs of the participants. The selected participants submit their projects of interest, and based on this information, the research plan and the duration of the placement are identified before their arrival. The participants are supported by mentors from TÜBİTAK UME during their placements. This formula undoubtedly maximizes the knowledge transfer, and thus we would like to acknowledge the valuable support from the scientists of TÜBİTAK UME.

We would like to offer our sincere thanks to TÜBİTAK UME (Turkey) for this joint initiative, and for the valuable contribution towards strengthening the BIPM Capacity Building and Knowledge Transfer (CBKT) Programme.

The call for applications for cycle five, to be run in 2022, will be opened soon, and the registration link will be sent to RMOs in due course.
