NA 2 - Science Networking

NA2 focused on determining the future major goals for the European planetary science community, relating them to Europlanet RI and placing them in a more global context. NA2 established a system of personnel exchanges, workshops and training groups to improve the scientific impact of the Infrastructure. The scientific working groups identified key science issues and produced reference books on major science themes that bridged the gap between the results of present and past missions and the scientific preparation of the future ones. NA2 also enhanced the ability of European planetary scientists to participate on the global scene with their own agenda-setting projects and ideas.
