    14 Jan 2015

    The objective of this workshop is to impart knowledge about statistical evaluation of cylinder test data and their interpretation with respect to safety assessment. Essentials, which will be introduced and elaborated, are:

    - Influence of test parameters on test results including scatter from non-controlled test parameters

    - basics about degradation investigated by cycle and burst testing

    - basics of statistics and its use in evaluation of test data

    - basics of safety assessment by using statistics.

    This school is intended to provide a practical introduction to the analysis of measured neutron-induced resonance reaction data and to the processing of experimental and evaluated data. Lectures and hands-on computer exercises will be alternated. Topics include neutron-induced reactions, R-matrix theory, neutron time-of-flight measurements, uncertainty and covariance assessment, data formats (ENDF, EXFOR), use of the resonance analysis code REFIT and related topics.

    In the frame of JRC's role as a service supporting all Commission DGs with its knowledge and expertise, JRC-IRMM will provide a specially tailored three-day workshop entitled "How to interpret technical requirements of the ISO/IEC-17025 standard for analytical measurements" for DG Health and Consumer's Food and Veterinary Office (FVO).

  7. 8 Oct 2014
    10 Oct 2014

    This course provides participants with the theoretical basis for the estimation of measurement uncertainty and establishment of traceability. The course is intended for laboratory managers and practitioners in analytical laboratories who use reference materials for statistical quality control, method validation and calibration and need to assess measurement uncertainties on customer’s demand or as requirement of ISO 17025.

    The summer school is provided by a consortium of nine European universities, with JRC as the mentoring organisation, who together deliver a Master’s Degree Programme offering education in measurement science.  An important activity of the Measurement Science in Chemistry (MSC) Euromaster is the summer school – an intensive course focusing on quality assurance in measurement science in chemistry. This year 41 students from 12 different countries will participate (Belgium, Estonia, Finland, France, Malawi, Morocco, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Tunisia).
