  • Organization of meetings
  • Awarding of scientific prizes
  • Grants to students to participate in scientific events
  • Promoting contacts between university and industry for know-how transfer
  • Support for appropriate research projects (The promotion of the economic interests of industry is expressly excluded)
  • Formation of special interest groups on certain areas of mass spectrometry
  • Cooperation with domestic and foreign organizations of comparable scientific tasks
