About our mission

Analytical science plays a crucial role in economic and societal dynamics in the Netherlands. Positioned between fundamental sciences and final application, analytical science is at the heart of innovation. By uniting technology and application under a shared focus, innovation in analytical science will greatly benefit the topsectors and the societal challenges or mission themes as defined by the Dutch government.

Analytical science:

  • Enables system understanding through measurement of a variety of factors
  • Generates insight in structure-property relationships for materials and biological entities
  • Facilitates real-time in-situ measurement
