The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will be holding an industry consultation workshop for the Measurements for Materials Performance programme on 10th July 2003 at BSI British Standards HQ, London.

The Performance Programme Formulation workshop will enable interested parties, such as materials suppliers, engineers, manufacturers and end-users, to help with the selection of high value projects for funding.

The Performance programme will develop measurement and predictive tools for material properties in service environments. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the proposed projects in detail and help specify the work to be done in the programme. Industrial support is critical to this programme.
