Activities 2018 at the National Metrology Institute of Sweden - Maintenance and investment in reference equipment

Reference number
Coordinator RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB - RISE RESEARCH INSTITUTES OF SWEDEN AB,Borås
Funding from Vinnova SEK 21 600 000
Project duration December 2017 - December 2018
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The aim of the activities at the National Metrology Institute (NMI) of Sweden for 2018 was to make available high competence by e.g. keeping the same number of CMCs (Calibration and Measurement Capability) in the database at BIPM as 2017 and thus maintain the same level of service for Swedish industry. Activities within the NMI of SP covers Mass, Length, Volume/flow , Force, Pressure, Sound/acceleration, Time/frequency, Electricity DC/LF, high voltage and microwaves, Photometry/radiometry and Temperature. See attachment.

Expected results and effects

The expected results of the NMI at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB is to fulfill all aspects described within the area of maintenance of standards with investment in reference standards and including participation in international comparison measurements according to a Mutual Recognition Arrangement, MRA.

Planned approach and implementation

Project plans and implementation are summarized in the original application for maintenance of standards and related investments in reference equipment. The activities within the NMI of RISE covers Mass, Length, Volume/flow , Force, Pressure, Sound/acceleration, Time/frequency, Electricity DC/LF, high voltage and microwaves, Photometry/radiometry and Temperature and recognized in full in the 20 appendices that w ere part of the original proposal. Report of the results are attached here.
