CAMS is an industry-led initiative aimed at promoting world-class analytical measurement science training, research and innovation by bringing together a network of industrial and academic partners with interests in these fields across the UK and Ireland. Our network is managed by an Executive, aided by other decision-making committees: The Industry Advisory Board (IAB), The Academic Management Panel (MSI) and the Training Management Panel (BEAM).
We are funded by the Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund (ACTF), our industry memberships, academia programme co-funding, (former) BEIS and supported by the Medicines Manufacturing Industry Partnership (MMIP)
As an industry led-network, CAMS works to address specific industry challenges in four priority areas:
- Point of use sensors and photonics
- Complex mixtures, separations and detection
- Data analytics
- Novel instrumentation or techniques
