The AMA Science Board focuses on research and development, vocational and advanced training, AMA conferences and symposiums, as well as funding and support programs. The AMA Association for Sensors and Measurement bestows the AMA Innovation Award every year for exceptional developments in sensor and measuring technology. The jury, primarily consisting of members of the AMA Science Board, has been awarding prizes for innovative and market-relevant projects in sensor and measuring technology since 1985.



The Sensor and Measurement Science International Conference (SMSI) has been held every two years since 2021. This international congress integrates the former AMA congresses and is considered an international networking platform for sensor and measurement technology. The SMSI enabled the internationally oriented professional audience an intensive, professional exchange and present the latest research results from the individual disciplines.
