Whether we put fuel in our cars, the satnav keeps us on track or our blood sample is tested in the laboratory − metrology permeates our everyday life. The approx. 1900 staff members of PTB work at the world class level to make measurements increasingly more precise and reliable and to support the German economy through its research and development. Here you can obtain information about PTB and, furthermore, find out what opportunities PTB offers for employees and young scientists. This project aims to document the development of the Physikalisch-Technische Reichsanstalt (Imperial Physical Technical Institute (PTR)) during the Third Reich and examine its role in the National Socialist (NS) scientific community. Prof. Dr. Dieter Hoffmann (Max-Planck-Institute for the History of Science) is working on this project. International Affairs: If two people want to communicate with each other, they ought to speak the same language. In the scientific-technical world, measurement results represent such a language. Thus, a measuring system which is uniform throughout the world is indispensable, especially in these times of globalization. Metrology in Europe: For a long time, PTB has been successfully involved in European committees, aiming to put the metrology of all countries on a common basis. Metrology worldwide: PTBs scientists are continually in contact with colleagues from all over the world. Technical cooperation: PTB supports developing countries and countries in transition in developing and using an internationally recognized quality infrastructure which is geared to the countrys needs.

Innovation and Technology Transfer New technologies are created thanks to the commitment and creativity of our employees within the framework of our public mandate. Here you will find offers for these technologies - also for branches outside of pure metrology. DIN-Connect – Measure to promote innovation "WIPANO - Transfer of knowledge and technology through patents and standards" PTB develops better standards for microscopic resolution BMBF supports SMEs and industrial research co-operation with € 320 million Mechanics and Acoustics, Electricity, Chemical Physics and Explosion Protection, Optics, Precision Engineering, Ionizing Radiation, Temperature and Synchrotron Radiation, Medical Physics and Metrological Information Technology, Scientific-technical Cross-sectional Tasks, Administrative Services PTB is among the top names in metrology worldwide. As the National Metrology Institute of Germany, PTB is Germanys highest authority when it comes to correct and reliable measurements. Research and development work amounts to about two thirds of all of PTBs activities.
