Stakeholder Engagement

NIST engages with key stakeholders to learn about pressing measurement challenges, to jointly develop potential solutions, and to disseminate NIST products. NIST also serves as a neutral ground for the discussion of measurements and other manufacturing needs. NIST workshops provide a forum for actively engaging stakeholders to discuss common pre-competitive measurement challenges, and the outcomes help us to be more responsive in addressing common measurement needs.
