We invite graduate students, doctoral students, scientists, employees of metrological services for internships and advanced training

The National Scientific Centre “Institute of Metrology” is the leading organisation for ensuring the uniformity of measurements in Ukraine. The set of measurement standards established at the NSC “IM”, consisting of 54 state and 16 secondary measurement standards, has been recognised as a national patrimony.

Our institute possesses great scientific and technical potential and practical experience, which is transferred through advanced training for specialists in the field of metrology for all types of measurements: AUV, EM, L, M, PR, IR, T, TF, and QM**.

The Institute is constantly expanding and strengthening its liaisons with metrology centres in Ukraine and abroad, as well as with the international metrology organisations such as EURAMET, BIPM, OIML and others.

The NSC “IM” has gained experience in conducting scientific and training seminars, advanced training courses and practical internships for the staff of national metrology institutes, enterprises, and laboratories of the post-Soviet countries, as well as, in particular, the People’s Republic of China, the United Arab Emirates and others.

The purpose of the training is to upgrade theoretical and practical skills of young scientists, specialists of enterprises and laboratories by conducting original author’s research using modern equipment and technologies, mastering the latest unique methods, gaining experience in research and teaching activities, providing information exchange and expansion of scientific contacts and opportunities for professional development.

Educational programmes are designed for 24-180 acad. hours and are delivered using scientific and production facilities under the guidance of the leading scientists from the NSC “Institute of Metrology”.

Distance classes and consultations via videoconferences are also possible.

Scientific internship is offered to young scientists who can demonstrate scientific achievements and conduct fundamental and applied scientific research at a high scientific level.
