COAST proudly announces FAST-2019, the third edition of our annual conference focused on analytical science and technology. This two-day COAST research and innovation conference will take place on Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 May 2019. Like last year, the location is the Koningshof in Veldhoven. Unlike in the previous two editions FAST 2019 will be open for participation by non-COAST members (at a different fee, which includes a contribution to COAST's efforts in organizing the meeting). 

The conference highlights developments in analytical science and technology, the areas in which it plays a significant role, such as high-tech instrumentation, and applications in chemistry, water, food and life science. In various sessions, renowned experts from industry and academia will share their most recent results and accomplishments. This two-day conference also provides you with a great opportunity to get in touch with the Analytical-Science Community.

FAST is the showcase of Analytical Science in The Netherlands. Therefore, we encourage all analytical scientists to be present.
