Invitation from CEO to Cresset user group meetings

Our annual user group meetings ‘Field Based Chemistry’ are excellent forums for the sharing of ideas, approaches and results. Previous attendees have told me that they really value the chance to meet with the Cresset team and with colleagues from industry and academia who are working in similar scientific areas.

Although referred to as user meetings, these meetings are open to everyone, whether or not you are are a current Cresset customer. We look forward to welcoming you in June.

Dr. Robert Scoffin, CEO
