The principal purpose of the ABG is to sponsor and organise events in the field of analytical biosciences in order to disseminate information and promote networking. The committee use RSC funds to sponsor conferences, seminars, training courses, etc. in relevant subject areas. Sometimes such events arise directly from ABG discussions but often the ABG will co-sponsor events already being planned by other parties providing financial support, publicity, and/or administrative input.
As well as carrying out activities directly supporting the ABG’s aims, together with the associated administrative tasks, committee members try to maintain good links with other groups and organisations which have complementary interests including other groups within the RSC.
