International reach


Strengthening relationships

Collaborate, co-operate and innovate

Working together, we can combine market knowledge and commercial awareness with technical knowledge. Our multi-disciplinary teams can work with your organisation to help you develop new products, update your processes or understand challenging business and technology issues.

NPL recognises that research is increasingly carried out across the world and we need to provide our measurement expertise wherever it is needed.

Secondments can help to build and nurture collaborations between NPL and overseas organisations. Whether you're looking for project enhancing capabilities or professional development, secondments are an opportunity to gain unique experience and learn from others. 

International secondments

NPL abroad

Our scientists and engineers are seconded to companies and universities around the world. This broadens our knowledge and helps spread best practice in metrology.

Come and work with us

We host researchers from universities and research institutes across the world, on a short- or long-term basis. Funding is available for travel and subsistence for up to six months. The secondment length can exceed this if funding is secured from another organisation.
