Our Vision

The Future Metrology Hub’s vision is to transform the UK’s manufacturing performance by delivering significant improvements in the speed, accuracy and cost of measurement. 
The vision is driven by the need to develop and deploy new and more effective measurement solutions and practice. This encompasses a wide range of disciplines with a mixture of fundamental and applied research.


Research carried out at the University of Huddersfield and at our spoke partner Universities in Sheffield, Loughborough and Bath will resolve two key challenges: 

  • The integration of metrology into the design process.
  • Smart data analytics systems to accurately and efficiently extract and exploit large metrology data sets from multi-scale sensor networks. 

With an investment of over £40 million, the Hub is a key part of the UK Government’s research strategy to ensure that the UK becomes more competitive and productive.
