The Foram Group exists to serve the interests of all micropalaeontologists with research and applied interests in the Foraminifera. The Group co-organizes a highly successful annual spring meeting, held jointly with the TMS Nanno Group; in addition we aim to support requests by members of the TMS for sponsorship of workshop and related events. The Group is currently actively seeking to increase its engagement with industrial and applied micropalaeontologists and would welcome opportunities to support a stronger interaction and exchange of knowledge between the non-industrial (academic) and industrial sectors.
