Anniversary: 10 Years B-IGSM 13.10.2017 | 09:00 Uhr - 13:00 Uhr
Ten years ago, in 2007, Germany’s oldest and renowned technical University, Technische Universität Braunschweig, and one of the top measurement institutions in the world, the PhysikalischTechnische Bundesanstalt (PTB), joined forces to establish an international metrological training center – the Braunschweig International Graduate School of Metrology (B-IGSM) to foster metrological knowledge in all areas of science and engineering. B-IGSM offers a structured doctorate in cutting-edge research combined with a metrological qualification program where a metrological certifi cate can be earned. The graduate school supports its PhD students in acquiring key competences in metrology by offering a curriculum on metrological concepts and research as well as on structures of metrology and regulatory activities. The curriculum is complemented by summer schools, topical as well as soft skill courses, social events and field trips. The long successful cooperation in metrology research between TU Braunschweig and PTB helped to establish the Metrology Initiative Braunschweig, which now operates the DFG Research Training Group 1952 “Metrology for Complex Nanosystems”, the QuanoMet project and will start nanometrology related work in the new research facility LENA in 2018. On October 13th BIGSM celebrates the ten year anniversary with principle investigators, alumni and currently active PhD students. All guests are very welcome!
