Chair of EURAMET\'s European Metrology Network for Energy Gases
Annarita Baldan is the principal scientist at VSL, the Dutch Metrology Institute. For the past 20 years, she has worked in the field of metrology for chemistry. Her research is devoted to gas analysis, and specifically, to developing the metrological infrastructure needed to address the grand challenges facing energy, the environment and the climate.
Among her many achievements, Annarita has developed primary reference gas mixtures containing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) at trace concentration levels, by using gravimetric and dynamic primary techniques. In addition, she is a member of several standardisation bodies – including the International Standardisation Organisation (ISO) group ISO/TC158 for ‘Gas Analysis’.
Annarita has also been the coordinator of several successful research projects under the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP).
