EANA 2020 - Virtual conference
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the planned EANA meeting in Bologna had to be postponed to another year. Instead, a shortened virtual meeting was organized to connect the European Astrobiology community, with a vivid and interactive programme for two half days on 27th and 28th August, 2020.
The virtual meeting consisted of selected keynote presentations, a live panel discussion, our well-known Space Factor student contest, as well as poster presentations.
EANA 2020 was organized by the EANA Executive Board (Barbara Cavalazzi, Frances Westall, Tetyana Milojevic, Kai Finster, Ruth-Sophie Taubner, Lena Noack). For any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us via eana-web (at) eana-net.eu.
Access to virtual EANA 2020While the restricted content of EANA 2020 is now not available anymore, we are pleased to say that our keynote lecturers agreed to keep their talks available on the EANA conference webpage.
