Introduction to Time and Frequency Module

In this NPL certified course, we will introduce the scientific concept of time and how it is measured and disseminated. This course is the first in a series from the National Timing Centre (NTC) Programme that will help people to build skills in time and frequency to support the maintenance and innovation required for many sectors of society to function properly.

The National Timing Centre

The National Timing Centre programme (NTC), led by NPL, has started to develop the UK’s first nationally distributed time infrastructure. As the UK’s timing authority, it enables the UK to move away from reliance on GNSS and deliver resilient UK time and frequency that provides confidence to our Critical National Infrastructure.

Measure Up News

Measure Up brings you a snapshot of our organisation and how we are having an impact on science, technology and engineering. From informing government to leading the scientific debate, we are proud to be working with companies and research establishments from the UK and overseas. Be the first to discover how NPL is tackling societies' challenges.


Analysis for Innovators (A4I) enables innovation and improves productivity and competitiveness for UK businesses. 

UK businesses can apply to access cutting-edge R&D expertise and work with world-leading scientists and research facilities, to solve technical analysis or measurement problems that are holding back innovation.

A4I is led by Innovate UK, in partnership with NPL and other laboratories. This popular funding programme is launching its eighth round and has so far funded more than 270 projects.

Postgraduate Institute for Measurement

The PostGraduate Institute for Measurement Science (PGI) is a pioneering initiative to equip the UK with an exceptionally skilled workforce ready to tackle real life industrial challenges. The vision of the PGI is to be the number one institute for postgraduate research and training in measurement science.
