AbstractA recent workshop was held at the Kavli Royal Society International Centre, Buckinghamshire, 18-19th May 2015, under the auspices of the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP) (Machin et al., 2014) project "Implementing the new kelvin". The purpose of the meeting was to take stock of the current state of primary thermometry and identify the research required to: (a) ensure a smooth implementation of the unit following the redefinition in 2018, (b) support the evolving mise en pratique for the definition of the kelvin (MeP-K) and (c) identify requirements for a future temperature scale, the ITSxx, possibly to be established in the mid-2020s. This short communication has been written to give the key findings of the workshop, including future research directions for the field. © 2015 Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
