Joint IMEKO TC6 and OIML DTG webinar on blockchain technologies in metrology

In recent years, several initiatives have been started to investigate the potential use of distributed ledger, also known as blockchain, technologies in metrology. Proposed applications range from making traceability in calibration hierarchies more transparent and efficient to distributed infrastructures for processes in the quality infrastructure.

The IMEKO TC6 "Digitalisation" and the OIML "Digitalisation Task Group" are jointly organising a webinar on this topic on 29th March 2023 from 11:00 to 14:00 UTC.
