The theme of World Metrology Day for 2024 is:
Sustainability – the numerous measurement opportunities that contribute to the establishment of a sustainable global economy.

The Press Release and Director's Message can be viewed on the Official Website.(external link) 

World Metrology Day officially recognised by UNESCO read more here.

As always, it will also be an opportunity to visit some of MSL’s laboratories, and this year we will feature a visit with Robert Holt to see the HyLink(external link) demonstrator on the Callaghan Innovation campus. Another part of the day to look forward to will be the Metrology Society of Australasia's (MSA(external link)) Emerging Young Metrologist Award presentation and the MSA networking hour.

We invite you to join us in person for the day, including lunch, the tours and the networking hour, or virtually for the presentations. The event is free but spaces may be limited on site, so please register now to confirm your place.
