TC6 - Digitalization
The aim of TC6 is to develop, organise and disseminate fundamental concepts of measurement science that relate to digitalisation and digital transformation in science, industry, and society. The TC promotes the accumulation and curation of knowledge in various forms relating to the digitalisation of measurement methodologies and measurement outcomes. Its purpose is to provide a robust body of knowledge to support digital transformation when measurement is involved.
Digitalisation's multidisciplinary nature is expected to overlap with other IMEKO groups' interests. TC6 thus encourages collaborations and joint activities with other TCs.
TC6 is announcing:
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" jointly organize a webinar on this topic on 29th March 2023 from 11 - 14 UTC.
The aim is to bring together experts and interested colleagues from metrology, legal metrology and the general quality infrastructure for exchange and discussion on this topic. It is also intended to take this webinar as a starting point for a regular exchange aiming for harmonization and interoperability of developments in the long run.
Already confirmed presentations are
- PTB, Germany: From the European Metrology Cloud to an international QI Cloud
- Random Red, Croatia: Metroracle
- EBSI, European Commission: pan-European SSI/digital identity
- NMI-A, Australia: National blockchain development initiative for legal metrology
- NPL, United Kingdom: Blockchain applications in metrology and advanced manufacturing
