EAMC Competition

The Eurachem Analytical Measurement Competition (EAMC) was initiated by Dr Sean Cawley of IT Carlow in 1999. It is promoted by Eurachem Ireland, the Heads of School of Science, and Council of Directors of the Institutes of Technology. The EAMC is designed to raise awareness among student analysts of uncertainty in measurement and the requirement for excellence in analytical skills. The EAMC Competition is open to teams of two full-time third-level registered students studying laboratory sciences in Universities or Institutes of Technology anywhere in Ireland and who have not yet entered the third year of their course. Competitors are chosen by their own Institution, for their practical laboratory skills. Each Institution may submit a first team (and one reserve team), for the National Final EAMC. The 2019 competition will entail a titration, and ultra‐violet/visible spectrophotometric determination using supplied Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and response to a short questionnaire. Competitors are expected to report and quantify sources of error.EAMC Competition The Eurachem Analytical Measurement Competition (EAMC) was initiated by Dr Sean Cawley of IT Carlow in 1999.
