World Metrology Day 2023 Event
The Measurement Standards Laboratory (MSL) warmly invites you to the annual World Metrology Day celebration on Friday 19 May 2023 at Gracefield Innovation Quarter, Lower Hutt.
Presenting the programme and it's not too late to...
This is a wonderful opportunity to build connections and hear from an exciting range of speakers.
It is also an opportunity to visit some of MSL’s laboratories, and there will be a feature tour of Callaghan Innovation’s FoodScreener Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Laboratory(external link). The event will end with the Metrology Society of Australasia (MSA) networking hour.
The theme of World Metrology Day(external link) for 2023 is measurements supporting the global food system. There are many ways that metrology is involved in the production, safety, and supply of food all around the world. Metrology can help to address challenges posed by climate change and by a world whose population reached 8 billion at the end of 2022.

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.
