Creating impact

The overall objective of this project is to provide a comprehensive set of new and improved examples to illustrate uncertainty evaluation methods that are in accordance with the GUM and related suite of documents.

The objective of this work package is to maximise the value and impact of the scientific work delivered by the project, via a wide range of activities to disseminate the outputs of the project and to encourage their uptake by end-users.

The activities undertaken in this work package include:

  • The creation of a Stakeholder Committee, which will include: representatives from the project partner organisations; member organisations of the Joint Committee on Guides in Metrology (BIPM, IEC, IFCC, ILAC, ISO, IUPAC, IUPAP and OIML); and representatives from the CIPM Consultative Committees, industry, and standardisation. The aim of the stakeholder committee is to clarify the needs of the various interested parties and to feed these into the project. Key stakeholders in the areas of legal metrology, accreditation, manufacturing and research will be contacted regarding membership of the Stakeholder Committee.
  • The creation of this project website, which will be regularly updated with information such as project reports, papers published by the partners, and details of project meetings and workshops.
  • Contributions at international events (e.g. conferences and symposia).
  • Submission of papers and articles to peer-reviewed journals and other publications.
  • Collation of the template examples and worked examples generated in work packages 1 and 2 into a compendium to be used as a good practice guide for decision making.
  • Dissemination of project information and outcomes to: various standards bodies and committees; and to the European centre MATHMET (which promotes best practice in mathematics and statistics for metrology, and increases the impact of mathematics and statistics research by providing a forum for European metrology organisations, industries and standardisation bodies).
  • Organisation of workshops and training courses to: promote the aims and progress of the project; focus on selected examples elaborated during the project; and provide training on the uncertainty evaluation methods appropriate in various disciplines and the manner in which the examples can be adapted to other applications.
  • Development of an exploitation plan for the project.
