This unique International Summer School on Analytical Science, Metrology and Accreditation is organised by the Measurement Science in Chemistry consortium, which is a cooperation of universities. The school has shown to attract a variety of people, ranging from master to doctoral students, but also people who already are employed in a laboratory.
It has a long tradition. It was initiated in 2008 by the European Commission Joint Research Centre, in view of the importance of quality assured analytical measurement data for many European policies. In 2018 it will be the 11th year that this summer school takes place.
Typically some 40 people come together for a two week intensive school to learn about how to obtain quality in chemical or bio-analytical measurements by understanding and practicing how to apply the international standard (ISO/IEC 17025) and of the role of metrology and accreditation.
In 2018 the school will take place in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia.
