NPL is the national laboratory for measurement science and metrology. We provide the measurement standards for all science, technology and manufacturing and are uniquely placed to support UK industry to meet the unprecedented challenges presented by the coronavirus.
We supported the UK Government’s Ventilator Challenge, helped companies produce high quality PPE and much more. We are now providing support and assistance to organisations as they restart their activities in the new business environment.
Metrology and measurement science will help economic recovery by:
- Improving the effectiveness and efficiency of science
- Reducing waste and increasing productivity
- Unlocking the potential of innovation faster and allowing earlier market entry
- Accelerating progress in science and in society
Measurement science is essential for the development and assessment of evidence-based policy, which is vital in these uncertain times.
