A workshop was held at the Kavli Royal Society International Centre, Buckinghamshire, 18-19th May 2015, under the auspices of the EMRP 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 redefinition of the unit 2018, b) support the evolving mise en pratique for the definition of the kelvin (MeP-K) and c) identify requirements for any future temperature scale the ITSxx (possibly to be established in the mid-2020s). Around 50 participants from around the world took part representing the temperature metrology community, academia and sensor manufacturers. Here we briefly report the contents of the meeting and key findings.
