Modern measurement technology is the key to quality, precision and safety for products to stay competitive.
The foundations for measurement technology in Goettingen were laid as early as in the 19th century, when scientists like C. F. Gauss (1775-1855) worked at the university.
As a typical cross-sectional technology, modern metrology is an integral part of product-, manufacturing- and process-automation. At the same time it is a major enabling technology. Many products would be non-existent without modern metrological systems and methods.
An increasing demand for innovative metrology needs to be covered in the fields of machine building, R&D, environmental protection, food analysis, transport and traffic.
Founded in 1998, the Measurement Valley association organizes the joint interests of more than 40 regional companies and scientific institutions operating in the field of measurement technology.
A central goal of the association is to establish the brand “Measurement Valley” with its close connection to the university, scientific institutions and research facilities in Goettingen.
The main emphasis is put on the synergetic alliance of the member companies which results in a measurable benefit for each member.
As a network of innovative companies and scientific institutions, Measurement Valley has become an integral part of Goettingen’s regional economy.
Another important prerequisite for the success of Measurement Valley is the fact, that the member companies – instead of competing with other members - complement one another with their service and product offer.
