Measurements in science and technology

Prof. Andrew J. Wallard, Director of the BIPM: Metrology has always had its eyes firmly fixed on practical steps in order to provide that «bridge to innovation ». Whitworth, that great British Victoria engineer said «You can only make as well as you can measure» and we are still faced with solving a measurement challenge so as to make a better product or to stimulate innovation. We are always trying to see why nature limits our ability to make a certain measurement, and then asking if the limit is a fundamental one or if, by coming up with some clever idea, we can go further. There is no doubt that metrology and science are interlinked and that the ability to make a better measurement opens up new opportunities.
