EANA International Spring School 2021: Hydrothermal Vents

EANA is celebrating its 20-years anniversary by organizing several special events throughout 2021.


Hydrothermal systems are crucial environments for astrobiology: they are thought to be the theatre of life's origins, host unprecedented polyextremophilic biodiversity, and are key targets in the search for life throughout the Solar System, especially on Mars and icy moons.

The first EANA online school took place from May 17th-21st, 2021, and focussed on hydrothermal systems from interdisciplinary perspectives at the interfaces of geology, biology and chemistry.
