Our Founder&CEO dr. Maurice Janssen gave a public evening lecture on MS-PECD at the Chemical Circle Den Bosch. The lecture (1.5 hours) was attended by an enthusiastic audience of former and present professionals in chemical and life sciences in the wider region around the historic town of Den Bosch in the southern part of the Netherlands.

The Chemical Circle Den Bosch was (re)founded in 1954 and is one of six circles that are part of the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society (KNCV). The circles are responsible for organizing informal activities across the country for chemists and other interested parties, such as lectures on current topics and excursions.

Founded in 1903, the KNCV is the professional association of chemists, life scientists and process technologists in the Netherlands. The KNCV is the largest chemical professional association in the Netherlands. The member base consists of people with a shared passion for molecules and includes chemists, life scientists, process technologists and (bio-)molecular scientists. The 8,500 members, who work hard to bring the variety and richness of the molecular field to life, operate in business, education and government or study at universities or institutions of higher education in Netherlands.

The city's official name 's-Hertogenbosch is a contraction of the Dutch des Hertogen bosch—"the Duke's forest". The duke in question was Duke Henry I of Brabant, whose family had owned a large estate at nearby Orthen for at least four centuries. He founded a new town located on some forested dunes in the middle of a marsh. At age 26, he granted 's-Hertogenbosch city rights and the corresponding trade privileges in 1185.
