COAST 2024

Many thanks to all speakers and around 100 participants who ensured a successful conference with a growing audience from academia and industry for the third time in a row!

On May 6 and 7, 2024 our 3rd Conference on Applied Surface Technology (COAST) took place in Vienna, focusing on surface-related topics to bridge the gap between basic research and its translation into industrial applications. The topics ranged from analytics, materials and sustainability to energy.

Surface chemistry is a wide field of research with significant implications for a broad range of other research fields, ranging from surface analytics over energy materials to sustainable solutions for our future. 

The aim of the conference was to present highlights of the diverse spectrum of surface chemical research. Furthermore, the variety of the different research approaches and the great importance of this field to develop solutions for sustainable novel technologies was highlighted.

Latest scientific results, exciting presentations and intensive discussions were framed by poster sessions, a conference dinner and networking opportunities. There was also a vote for the best poster and the winner received prize money and a certificate.

Save the date for next year – we look forward to seeing you on May 19 and 20, 2025!
