B-IGSM prolonged for another 5 years

Presidents of PTB and TU signed cooperation agreement to extend cooperation until the end of 2023

On 6 November a cooperation agreement between TU Braunschweig and PTB was signed to prolong the Braunschweig International Graduate School of Metrology for 5 years, starting on January 1st, 2019.

We are very happy to continue and are looking forward to the next five years.

In other news: B-IGSM's sister project, focusing on nanometrological topics, DFG Research Training Group 1952 NanoMet, has also been prolonged for another funding period (4.5 years). Congratulations to all who are involved!
