On Friday, August 8, 2014 the MSC Euromaster Summer School 2014 finished. This year’s summer school took place in Casablanca (Morocco) and was hosted by the ESITH educational centre. Around fourty students from ten countries participated.

As in previous years, a key activity of the summer school was the contest of student teams, which tested their knowledge and skills in almost all areas of metrology in chemistry. This year the summer school advanced further in terms of shiftin the activities away from the classical lecture-type of teaching by incresing the share of discussions, hands-on work, teamwork.
