NMS Learning Zone
The National Measurement System (NMS) is responsible for stimulating good measurement practice and enabling business to make accurate and traceable measurements, for the benefit of the nation.
Partnerships are vital in order to solve scientific and social challenges. The pooling of resources and the sharing of knowledge and expertise ensures that research is carried out efficiently and effectively.
These joint ventures focus on particular areas where additional partners, whether in science, business or government, can build on NPL's existing capabilities.
Global Sensing and Satellite Centre
The Global Sensing and Satellite Centre of Excellence (GloSS) is an exciting new venture between the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the University of Surrey, to develop a unique joint research centre combining measurement and satellite research, through a team of world-class researchers, engineers and facilities and providing new global information services.
Centre for Carbon Measurement
The Centre for Carbon Measurement reduces uncertainties in climate data, provides the robust measurement that is required to account for, price and trade carbon emissions and helps develop and accelerate the take up of low carbon technologies.
