On Monday, July 16, 2012 the fifth Measurement Science in Chemistry International Summer School started in Fatima (Portugal). In this edition, 48 students from thirteen countries participate. The dense and challenging programme will give the students opportunities to learn and practice almost every metrological aspect of analytical chemistry.

Topics, such as Validation of chemical analysis procedures, Statistical basis of calibration, Traceability in chemical analysis, Measurement Uncertainty, including the Alternative Approaches for the Quantification of Measurement Uncertainty, ISO 17025, Sampling and sample preparation in food and environmental analysis, Customer-analyst interactions are included in the programme.

Efforts are made to make the summer school more interactive (as opposed to listening to lectures). This is done via the student contest/game, accreditation visit to a real lab and numerous group work sessions.
