Looking back at the Milestones in Metrology V conference

The 5th edition of the Milestones in Metrology Conference took place on May 25 – 27, 2016, at EYE in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The event included plenary and parallel sessions covering a variety of topics related to measurement instruments and metrology.

The conference was successful, attracting near 200 international stakeholders, and provided great intellectual and social interaction for the participants. Central theme was ‘future-proof’, highlighted by the spectacular opening movie
