Scientific Update was established in 1989 by Dr. Trevor Laird to organise conferences and training courses for industrial chemists and chemical engineers in chemical development and scale-up and many other specialist topics in organic chemistry. We also provide extensive consultancy services in these fields and act on the Editorial Advisory Board for the international scientific journal entitled Organic Process Research and Development (OPRD).
Scientific Update has a dedicated team of organic chemists and event specialists with collectively over 60 years of experience organising scientific training courses and conferences for industrial chemists worldwide.
Our short intensive training courses enable scientists to learn about highly relevant topics, to broaden their knowledge and to keep abreast of new science, new technology and new techniques. A complete list of the scheduled training courses currently available can be viewed in the training section. Many of these are also available for in-house training.
Our specialist conferences provide the perfect forum for organic process chemists and chemical engineers to network with experts from industry and academia from all over the world.
Evolution of Scientific Update
In 2015, on the retirement of Trevor Laird, our management team Dr Will Watson, Dr Claire Francis, Mrs Debbie Reeve and Mrs Hannah May bought the company and established Scientific Update Ltd. Our aim is to provide you with the very best, up-to-date chemistry in a variety of attractive locations. At every event, Scientific Update provide the highest quality organisation and friendly support. We look forward to welcoming you to one of our events soon.
