New IEEE Milestones in Region 8


IEEE History Milestone to be unveiled in GLASGOW, Scotland.

On 17th September 2019, an IEEE History Milestone will be unveiled in the Hunterian, which is a museum on the campus of the University of Glasgow.

The Milestone is to recognise the work done on the standardisation of the unit of electrical resistance (the Ohm).



Prior to this work, there were many conflicting and confusing electrical units and systems, some of which persistied in use for many years.


The unveiling ceremony will be followed by a Technical Symposium during the afternoon in the nearby James Watt building.
