Isotech Becomes Scholarship Sponsor of ITS-10

Our support of the ITS-10/MSC scholarship program aims to maximize the participation of SIM members, especially those coming from under-resourced regions in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Participation in this activity is one that reflects many of the fundamental values of Isotech. We have been a pillar of primary temperature measurements for over 40 years, supplying metrology standards and education to the vast majority of NMIs worldwide. The spread of knowledge is a core principle of our company- a practice set by our founder John Tavener, a talented inventor, engineer, and entrepreneur, who paved this path through generous efforts to pass down his experience through conferences, papers, publications, and even personal instruction.

Shortly after joining Isotech’s US team in Vermont, I quickly learned that metrology is integral to science, technology, medicine, and commerce, ranging from simple applications in routine life to its role in industrialization and international trade. These aspects are vital in promoting the overall well-being and efficiency of any given nation. Unfortunately, many under-resourced countries in our region lack these necessary building blocks, partially due to the scarcity of education in this field. This is very familiar to me, as I was born in the Dominican Republic, an under-resourced nation. Furthermore, during ITS-9 we witnessed the difficulties that many endured to attend the International Temperature Symposium, thus providing Isotech with insight into areas where we could fill the gaps and help effectively. We embrace our opportunity to help engineers and scientists to attend ITS10 to access the most current knowledge and information and boost advancement in their developing nations. It is important to note the powerful connection between the Quality-Infrastructure of a country, and that country’s fate.

The Isotech family is proud to join in this landmark celebration, ITS10 which marks 100 years of undeviating commitment and achievement to temperature metrology.
