Announcing the awards

Dr Bruce Warrington, CEO and Chief Metrologist, will announce the winners on Wednesday 20 May, World Metrology Day. This day celebrated globally commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the Metre Convention in 1875.

This year’s theme is ‘Measurements for global trade’. It highlights the important role measurement plays in facilitating fair global trade, ensuring products meet standards and regulations, and satisfying customer quality expectations.

Last year’s theme was ‘The International System of Units - Fundamentally better’ which recognised one of the most significant revisions to measurement. The 2019 winners were Dr Maxim Goryachev (NMI Prize) and Associate Professor Wojciech Chrzanowski (The Barry Inglis Medal).
