From September 25 to 27 the three-day training workshop "An introduction to measurement uncertainty for young and early career marine scientists" will be held in Turin (Italy), Campus INRiM, Strada delle Cacce 91.
The workshop, organized through the MINKE project, is aimed at students, career scientists and technical personnel for marine sciences.
The workshop’s preliminary program is as follows:
- First day: overview on the topics related to measurement uncertainty;
- Second day: focus on the measurement uncertainty context, where specific case studies and issues will be discussed;
- Third day: visits to INRiM laboratories and a round table with all the participants, to promote an interactive discussion on the covered themes.
MINKE stands for Metrology for Integrated marine maNagement and Knowledge-transfer nEtwork, and it is an EU project that is aiming to try to lay down the foundations of a framework for making measurements coming from ocean and coastal observing systems more reliable. The project is funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 call entitled “Integrating and opening research infrastructures of European interest”.
The overall goal of MINKE is to integrate key European marine metrology research infrastructures and to coordinate their use and development working together with stakeholders such as the marine research organisations, instrument manufacturers, the international metrology community, academia, industry and civil society. The project is proposing an innovative framework of “data quality” for marine data that is multidimensional in character, considering not only “accuracy” but also other dimensions such as “completeness.”
