The Analytical Science Network (ASN) is a branch of the Analytical Division of the RSC established specifically for early career analytical scientists. Our key aim is to foster the careers of present and prospective analytical scientists and to promote analytical science to a wider community. We have members from both industry and academia who represent a diverse range of analytical disciplines. 


Annually we hold a 3-day conference - Emerging Analytical Professionals (EAP) and a 1-day symposium (Bright Spark Symposium.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 EAP 2020 has been postponed until February 2021, registration for which will be opened in September 2020. 

Our 2020 Bright Spark Symposium is still going ahead, subject to governmental advice.
