The Chemical Structure Association Trust (CSA Trust) is an internationally-recognised, registered charity which promotes education, research and development in the field of storage, processing and retrieval of information about chemical structures, reactions and compounds.

Many students and researchers world-wide, who work in this area, have benefited from the Trust Awards and Grants programmes to further their research work. The Trust has extended its educational activities through the production of a Newsletter and Website, and through the organisation of conferences and training.

These activities were formerly undertaken by the Chemical Structure Association. In 2003, the activities of the former CSA were successfully incorporated within the Trust so now there is just one organisation, which can better serve the chemical information community.

The Trust is managed by the Chair Dr Jonathan Goodman, assisted by the Board of Trustees, many of whom are world experts in specialised areas of chemical structure handling. The Newsletters, including the current issue, are now freely available to everyone, thanks to the generosity of our donors. Conferences and meetings are arranged in co-operation with other organisations, and the CSA Trust provides a forum for advice and discussion on chemical structure handling.

The Trust welcomes both corporate and individual donations. We welcome the support from Corporate Donors to enable our continued provision of Awards and Grants which benefit students and researchers world-wide.
