The CIM is to be the meeting-point for technical exchanges between all the actors of measurement: industrial users of equipments, technical experts, public and private laboratories, manufacturers and service providers.

This congress is unique in Europe.

It explores developments in measurement techniques, R&D advances and their implication for industry.

It demonstrates how measurement improves, day-to-day, industrial processes and risk management.

The major topics of the Congress are presented within 6 industrial round-tables:
