Connecting Challenges and Solutions through measurement Science
Science helps save lives, protect the environment and enable citizens to feel safe and secure. The focus of this conference is to demonstrate how researchers are delivering extraordinary impact by providing measurement solutions to many world problems, and developing the skills to become future leaders and experts.
Bringing together experts and practitioners of measurement science
The annual Postgraduate Institute for Measurement Science (PGI) conference brings together experts and practitioners in the field. The conference celebrates the success of its unique strategic partnership with the University of Surrey and University of Strathclyde.
Measurement science is transforming businesses, increasing productivity and providing confidence by promoting accuracy and reducing business risk. We aim to broker connections by bringing together a community of users and fostering new collaborations between academia, research institutes and industry, including SMEs and start-ups.
Day 1: Topical Keynote speeches
Responding to immediate crisis
Sometimes the world needs to respond to crises in faster and more powerful ways to make a positive difference in people’s lives. The faster an effective response can be initiated, the better the chance of mitigating negative outcomes. Measurement science plays a crucial role in responding to new challenges and can help people overcome difficulties and improve their quality of life.
Engineering the future
Technologies and electronics are leading our world now, and their development is our future. From space exploration to new medical devices, engineering makes our lives more productive and easier to manage. The technological advancement by engineers in energy, communications, materials, structures, and computers, have made the impossible, possible. Good measurements are vital to productivity, acceleration of product to market, and innovation.
Building security and resilience
Our need for security has changed. It continues to evolve as new areas threaten and disrupt our societal and economic well-being. Enhancing security and resilience is essential to protect citizens from unpredictable threats. Measurement science can help in managing risks to infrastructure, ensuring people can go about their daily lives with confidence.
Day 2: Building your career
The second day of the conference is designed to support students and early career researchers by helping them develop the skills and capabilities to advance in a diverse professional environment. There will be opportunities to hear from others about their career development and best practice on building networks.
