World Metrology Day 2024 in the Russian Federation

To mark the proclaimed by UNESCO May 20th as the World Metrology Day the metrology community of the Russian Federation led by the Federal Agency on Technical Regulating and Metrology (Rosstandart) in collaboration with the NMIs is going to organize a series of events on May 18-20, 2024, which are going to be held at the frequently visited and favourite place of Muscovites and guests of the capital ‒ the Exhibition of National Economic Achievements (VDNKh). Dedicated to the theme of sustainability the WMD-2024 encourages to highlight metrology’s value for quality of people’s lives. Among the planned measures are public lectures and discussions on the requirements for water meters for measuring cold and potable water, quality control of petrol (gasoline), and others. Since these issues concern, and are of interest for, the most part of society, these discussions may have a kind of training or educational importance. Today artificial intelligence is no doubt a burning issue. AI is in the focus of another WMD-event named “How to build trust in artificial intelligence”. For a dynamic and inquisitive audience ‒ young people ‒ the Rosstandart is offering a Quest named “Young metrologist”.

Besides, the Rosstandart management is going to hold a one-day roundtable, inviting metrologists from the regions, to share and discuss the directions and priority tasks of metrology development in the country.
