Abstract

We present here a summary of a workshop held 1-3 May 2018 at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK in which the focus was how the national metrology institutes of the world might help to address challenges in reproducibility of research. The workshop brought together experts from the measurement and wider research communities (Physical-, Data- and Life-sciences, Engineering, and Geology) to understand the issues and to explore how good measurement practice and principles can foster confidence in research findings [1, 2, 3], including how we can tackle the challenge posed by increasing data volumes in both industry and research. The workshop involved 63 participants from metrology laboratories (38), academia (16), industry (5), funding agencies (2), and publishers (2). The participants came from UK, US, Korea, France, Germany, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Turkey, and Singapore.
