COAST is one of a series of initiatives under the Technology Areas for Sustainable Chemistry innovation program (TASC). TASC is a public private partnership program under The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) and Advanced Chemical Technologies for Sustainability (ACTS); it comprises four separate technology areas (TA). The analytical science applications which were to be concentrated on ranged from the composition of complex mixtures, molecular structure assessment, solid characterization, as well as the increasingly important data handling and chemometrics. The range of applications regarded as falling under the scope of COAST went from extremely localized analyses such as personalized medicine applications through industrial process analysis as well as research into the fundamentals of new analytical technologies. Researchers are expected to look into making significant improvements in the resolution of analyses, whether in morphological studies and chemical imaging or in time domain and molecular dynamics.
