12th EURAMET General Assembly
June 5, 2018.
Mr. Čedomir Belić, Acting Director of Directorate of measures and precious metals attended 12th EURAMET General Assembly, regional European organization coordinating cooperation of national metrology institutes of Europe in the field of metrology. EURAMET’s General Assembly took place from 28th of May to 1st of June 2018 in Bucharest, Romania. Host of the meeting was Romanian national metrology institute (Institul National de Metrologie – INM).
During the meeting Annual work report of EURAMET and Board of Directors was presented. Strategic questions were considered with emphasis on coordination strategy in European metrology, European metrology program for innovations and research – EMPIR and related activities and EURAMET priorities. As in previous meeting, status of existing membership and admission of new institutes as EURAMET members were considered. Chairpersons presented work report of each technical committee for previous year. Results of existing projects of European metrology program for innovation and research (EMPIR) as well as announcement of new projects were presented.
Participation in EURAMET activities is of great significance for metrology and economy of our country, it creates preconditions for engagement of our economy in European flows. The sense of membership in the Meter Convention is achieved, providing worldwide recognition of our national standards and validity of calibration and measurement certificate issued from Directorate of measures and precious metals. That provides technical basis for agreements related to trade, exchange and legislation. Participation in EURAMET activities is particularly significant from the perspective of upcoming redefinition of fundamental measuring units of the international system of units, whose official adoption is expected in November this year.

Visit of pupils of elementary schools: “Nada Popović“, “Jovan Jovanović Zmaj“, ”Vuk Stefanović Karadžić”, “First technical school” and High School of Kruševac
May 20, 2018
On the occasion of the World Metrology Day within Days of opened door, pupils of elementary schools: “Nada Popović“, “Jovan Jovanović Zmaj“, ”Vuk Stefanović Karadžić”, “First technical school” and High School of Kruševac visited Directorate of measures and precious metals, Control and Supervision Section Kruševac.
The pupils were met with history of institution, the first Law on measurement, Meter convention, DMDM competences, mission and vision of DMDM as leading metrology institution in Serbia, activities and tasks in the field of metrology which are in function of improvement of business, scientific and other organizations as well as improvement of quality of life and people healthcare.
After short promo DMDM video was shown, study visit was continued with a tour through laboratories. In laboratory for mass measuring instruments, pupils were introduced with weight calibration process, work principles of water and electricity meters.
In Precious metal articles laboratory pupils were acquainted with methods of testing and hallmarking of precious metal articles.
Also, workshops in the field in the nearby Archeological Park were realized. Pupils measured distance between two points of interest with their steps. Step length was measured by meter strip then they counted distance of interest in meters converting it into feet, yards and inches.
They counted average length of their steps, confirming their knowledge about arithemtic mean. Pupils also measured length of their shadows, counting proportion based on the real value of their height.
After finished workshops pupils talked about Thales and Eratosthenes, which confirmed their interest for history of measurements and importance for learning, life and work.
