Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the workshop originally planned for Autumn 2020 has been postponed until it is feasible to safely run a physical event again. It is hoped that the workshop will take place in Q1/Q2 2023 in the Shared Facilities Building, Backweston Lab Campus, Young's Cross, Celbridge, Co. Kildare, W23 VW2C.
Details of the workshop, or any alternative virtual events, will be made available as soon as possible.

Sep 16th 2021 - Held remotely
A targeted discussion on the topic of replicate analysis was organised and facilitated by members of Eurachem Ireland, with Quality representatives from a number of organisations across the network. The aim was to explore the different approaches to replicate analysis and management of replicate results, with a view to understanding the approach taken by different labs, and the reasons for these approaches.

What is TrainMiC?
TrainMiC is a European Programme that aims to provide harmonised training to those working in analytical chemistry throughout Europe and is applicable in many different sectors (environment, food, consumer protection, etc.). The training courses are developed, validated and regularly updated by a European team of experts. Attendance at a TrainMiC workshop should help to improve the quality of chemical measurements and also help with interpreting some of the requirements of ISO 17025. There are currently nine modules in the TrainMiC syllabus. The entire syllabus can therefore be covered in three workshops. Eurachem Ireland facilitates the running of one of these day long workshops each spring meaning that the entire syllabus can be covered in a three year period. Attendance at part I or II is not necessary for attendance at part III.Eurachem Analytical Measurement Competition, April 7th 2017
This year it was hosted by Dublin Institute of Technology and included a Let's Agree to Agree - The Importance of Valid.
