A unique collaboration between industry and research
We would like to invite you to take part in the Postgraduate Institute for Measurement Science fourth Annual Conference taking place on 6–7 November 2019.
In keeping with this year’s theme of sustainability, the PGI conference booklet will not be printed, instead we invite delegates to download the programme and use on-line version here. Please visit the following link for the full conference agenda and delegate information, details now available.
Over the past four years, we have been working to achieve our vision to become the number one institute for research and training in measurement science. We have been collaborating with ever-increasing number of industrial organisations and universities, performing cutting-edge science and engineering research.
The two-day event will illustrate how the work we do can impact on our future prosperity and quality of life. You will also get a chance to hear from some of our partners and funders on how measurement science is making a difference in industries and more broadly on society.
We have adopted three themes to demonstrate the breadth of what we do:
- Creating impact on health – Display how your research contributes to providing effective diagnosis and therapy with common or novel health-based practices
- Sustaining our environment – Illustrate how your research approaches and combats current global environmental and energy challenges
- Making a difference to society – Show how your research can impact day-to-day living by improving or monitoring communications, economic performance and general quality of life

Science in Pixels photo competition
This year we held a photo competition encourage you to represent your research in an image. The aim of each image was to engage, inform and intrigue a non-specialist audience; to show the impact of your research or simply to highlight a single aspect of it. Entry is now closed. Prizes will be award during the conference - 7 November 2019.
