The Chinese Society of Chemical Science and Technology in the UK (CSCST-UK) launches its long-planned Newsletter after it passed its 18th birthday in April 2011. CSCST-UK has seen itself evolving from a small society first initiated by a few aspiring researchers at Oxford University to a UK-wide large professional network linking Chinese students, researchers and academicians in the broad field of chemistry, chemical engineering and biochemistry over the past eighteen years. During the course of providing excellent service to its members, it has partnered with the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Society of Chemical Industry, and a number of international chemical companies to increase its capacity, to strengthen its influence and to sustain its growth.
Nowadays, research is about collaboration. Most, if not all, research projects are to tackle complex problems that require multi-disciplinary approaches or efforts from various parts of the world such as climate change. To turn research into practical actions, collaboration could only become more imperative and necessary. That is the primary reason for CSCST-UK to launch its Newsletter. We feel that introduction of outstanding laboratories and research teams of both our members in the UK and our counterparts in China and elsewhere in the world is key to capturing potential collaborative opportunities. It would also serve as an excellent platform to showcase the excellent work and research strengths of our members and their partners.
