The AIT team of Lisa Kelly and Vlasta Chyzna were placed second (runner up) of 25 teams to the winners IT Sligo team.

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. Industry, academic and state laboratories constitute the Reference Committee*. 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.

This year 24 teams competed from AIT, DIT, GMIT, LIT, IT-Sligo, IT-Tallaght, IT-Tralee, WIT, DCU, TCD., UCD, UCG and Carlow IT.
