Quality of Life

We measure to improve your quality of life

INRIM develops knowledge and promotes innovation to support life sciences and quality of life. With reference to the European research programmes focused on the Societal Challenges, activities are focused on the development of the metrological science in the fields of biomedical applications, food, environment and energy. In these areas of activity, the institute cooperates with public bodies and private companies to meet the needs of the country for the citizen wellbeing and the environmental protection.

INRIM realises primary standards and guarantees traceability for kelvin and mole units. It develops technologies, innovative measurement systems and methods of analysis in the fields of interest, with particular attention to the scientific and technological applications of the thermal and chemical metrology.
