LUMINAR Large Volume Metrology in Industry

Luminar

The research within this EURAMET joint research project receives funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme, ERA-NET Plus, under Grant Agreement No. 217257.

Workshop Date:

 
09:00 Wednesday 18 May 2016 - 14:00 Thursday 19 May 2016 (1 days)

Workshop Location:

 
NPL - Main auditorium and Reception area
NPL main lecture theatre

NPL Reception foyer

The workshop was held at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, TW11 0LW, UK. The main lecture theatre was the focus for the event, with foyer space used for a small exhibition and coffee breaks.

Format

The workshop featured a series of 30-minute presentations, which were a mixture of the results and outputs from the research of the project (from the eight research teams), plus selected speakers from the end user community (aerospace, high value manufacturing, large science facilities). The aim of the workshop was to demonstrate the outputs from the three years of research and to survey what are the remaining or new challenges facing users of large volume metrology. The intention was to build on the three-year project by developing a consortium to bid for further funding for a 2017 EMPIR call to tackle other issues.

The NPL Reception foyer was used for a small exhibition of some of the research outputs from the project and small stands from equipment suppliers and organisations. Coffee breaks were held in the foyer, giving attendees a chance to see the exhibits, and at the end of the event, there were optional laboratory tours of NPL facilities.

The workshop dinner and networking event was in a local restaurant on the evening of the first day.

Workshop Agenda

All the research team members presented their outputs: NPL (UK), CNAM (FR), GUM (PL), INRIM (IT), PTB (DE), UCL (UK), U. Bath (UK), KIT (DE); and there were five presentations by external stakeholders.
