As we near the end of 2023, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank-you to the analytical community in the U.K and Ireland who have played their part in supporting CAMS. A special thanks goes of course to ACTF for their continued and generous financial support which has, together with our industry and academic members co-funded over 40 programmes in CAMS phase 1. We started our journey hoping to connect across the analytical community and to support and grow new talent which is connected into industry - and it really does feel like we are starting to do that. Our journey now continues into CAMS phase 2 and we are already signing up new members. If you want to be part of our journey - please get in touch. If you want to support events or be a sponsor, just want to be connected into the network or want to be a corporate member - we are open for business. CAMS is your community and we need you if we are to achieve our vision. If you have meetings or jobs to advertise or want to find collaborators - we are here to help you connect. Look out for our CAMS project challenges in Q1 2024 - which will support (co-fund) PhD and postdoc research projects - we hope to welcome new academic institutions through these calls.
So- for now, we will wish you a happy, healthy and restful Christmas - and we will look forward to connecting with you in 2024.
(CAMS Executive Board Chair)
