In recognition of World Metrology Day, the National Measurement Institute (NMI) created two perpetual awards – The Barry Inglis Medal and the NMI prize.

The Barry Inglis Medal acknowledges and celebrates outstanding achievement in measurement research and/or excellence in practical measurements by an individual (or group) in the fields of academia, research or industry in Australia. The medal is named in honour of Dr Barry Inglis, NMI’s inaugural Chief Executive and Chief Metrologist and former Chair of NATA’s Board.

The NMI Prize acknowledges and celebrates outstanding achievement in measurement and research and/or excellence in practical measurements by a young individual working in academia or industry in Australia. This prize is reserved specifically for young Australians as a means of promoting measurement science and fostering the application of measurement science and techniques in innovative fields.

The winners of these Awards, Dr Graham Jones from Sydney’s St Vincent’s Hospital (for the Barry Inglis Medal) and Dr Alessandro Rossi from the University of New South Wales (for the NMI Prize), will be honoured at an Awards ceremony on Monday 16 November at NMI in West Lindfield. 

Special guests will include the Hon. Karen Andrews MP (Assistant Minster for Science), Dr Peter Fisk (NMI’s Chief Executive and Chief Metrologist) and Dr Barry Inglis PSM (inaugural CEO of NMI and former NATA Chair).
