Townhall Meeting: UK MS Large Infrastructure Bid Proposal

10th Dec 2021

The British Mass Spectrometry Society (BMSS) on behalf of the UKMS community at large invite you to engage with the UKMS LARGE INFRASTRUCTURE BID 2022 project.

We encourage ALL stakeholders in our enabling science to participate in a ‘Town Hall Meeting’ on the 20th January 2022 to inform and refine our community submission to UKRI in 2Q2022.


The History of the UKRI Large Infrastructure Bid Proposal

The BMSS proactively initiated a member consultation exercise (2017-2020) to collate views on the future requirements for Mass Spectrometry in the UK. As a result the Society distilled a first draft Vision for Mass Spectrometry in the UK. In February 2021 the UKMS Vision Working Group submitted a Statement of Need to EPSRC/UKRI that was well received.


Next Steps

We now need to refine our vision into a crystal clear LARGE INFRASTRUCTURE BID proposal for consideration by the UKRI Infrastructure Advisory Committee (Ca 2Q2022).

Our nascent vision was discussed in an open session at the 41st BMSS Annual Meeting (Sheffield, 13-SEP-21) and the agreed action was to initiate a wider consultation of the UK MS community. That consultation has now been completed.

The UK MS Vision Working Group invites ALL stakeholders to participate in a ‘Town Hall Meeting’ on 20th January 2022 at 10 am to review the findings of that latest round of consultation.
