Metrodiff (France) fête la Journée mondiale de la métrologie 2019

L'association Métrodiff a pour but de promouvoir la culture métrologique et de mettre en place tout type d’action concourant à la diffusion de cette culture. Outre la présentation de l’association et de ses activités, l’objectif de Métrodiff et de son site web est de permettre une approche des notions de base de la métrologie, de son histoire, de la métrologie contemporaine et de la structuration actuelle de son domaine.

L’association aborde d’autres questions de mesure, plus sociaux, tels les indicateurs. La richesse et la diversité des points de vue et des compétences au sein de Métrodiff facilitent la mise en relation entre les personnes et les regards croisés autour des questions de mesure et de métrologie en lien avec le partage de la culture métrologique entre le plus grand nombre.

Le 20 mai 2019, Métrodiff organise un Café-débat “Métrologie et sciences de l’information et de la communication” de 17h30 à 20h30 à l'Amphithéâtre Robert Faure au Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, 292 rue Saint Martin, 75003 Paris, France.
