10 years (B-)IGSM

Celebrations of the 10 year anniversary on October 13th, 2017.

In 2007 the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesantalt (PTB) and the TU Braunschweig joined forces to found a graduate school for young academics in the field of metrology - the Braunschweig International Graduate School of Metrology.

On October 13th we will celebrate this anniversary with talks by former and current members of B-IGSM as well as friends and partners of B-IGSM.

One day earlier, on October 12th our partner, the Research training Group NanoMet, invites all interested people to attend their International Symposium.
