The European Centre for
Mathematics and Statistics in Metrology

MATHMET Kick-off Meeting

MATHMET had its first General Assembly on July 12th 2016
Author: Sascha Eichstädt

The European Centre MATHMET has been established considering the need for collaborative research on mathematical and statistical methods for metrology, since modern metrology requires expert knowledge of and relates on further advances in applied mathematics, statistics, numerical computation and related state-of-the-art computational tools. Therefore, the aim of MATHMET is to undertake collaborative research, publish guidelines, case studies and best-practice guides and to provide a unique reference point of information.
MATHMET activities are arranged around selected research areas covering many aspects of modelling and simulation and statistical data analysis in metrology: uncertainty evaluation, key comparisons, regression and inverse problems, uncertainty quantification in complex models, conformity assessment and dynamic measurements. Joint work will be carried out in dedicated MATHMET projects funded by the member institutes and through externally funded research projects. The MATHMET website provides an overview on the activities of MATHMET and is a unique reference point for general information about research activities in mathematical and statistical methods for metrology.
MATHMET emerged from a collaborative research project funded by the European Metrology research program (EMRP) of EURAMET, the association of European metrology research institutes. The founding members of MATHMET are four European national metrology institutes (NMIs) from France (LNE), the United Kingdom (NPL), Germany (PTB) and Sweden (SP). MATHMET membership is open to further European NMIs and other interested institutions and organisations.

During its first General Assembly at July 12th 2016 on the Berlin campus of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), the General Assembly of MATHMET has elected its Chair (Markus Bär, PTB), co-Chair (Nicolas Fischer, LNE) and Secretary (Sascha Eichstädt, PTB), developed a draft Rules of Procedure document, established its first official MATHMET Project “Mathematics and statistics for dynamic measurements” (MATHMET Dynamic) and laid the foundation for future collaborations within MATHMET and between MATHMET and external partners.
