Announcing Joint Training Initiative between TÜBİTAK UME and the BIPM

-A +A

Under an agreement signed between the BIPM and TÜBİTAK UME, hands-on laboratory training and research experience for periods ranging from one month to three months will be offered to selected researchers from NMIs and DIs that have recently begun participation in the CIPM MRA or those that are expected to begin participation in the near future.

The "BIPM - TÜBİTAK UME project placements" will be offered in two terms, one in 2018 and one in 2019, with a maximum of ten researchers being accepted in each term.  Interested researchers will be expected to propose a small research project in any field of metrology in their applications to be submitted through the BIPM website. The applications will be jointly evaluated by the BIPM and TÜBİTAK UME and those selected will have the opportunity to gain training/research experience in the area of their choice. The programme will also include sessions on the CIPM MRA and its requirements led by experts from the BIPM.

The project placements are being offered as TÜBİTAK UME’s contribution to the Capacity Building and Knowledge Transfer (CBKT) Programme implemented by the BIPM which aims to increase the visibility and participation of emerging metrology systems in the world-wide metrology community.
