NA 2 - Science Networking

NA2 acts as a small prospective forum, as it focuses 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 is establishing a system of personnel exchanges, workshops and training groups to improve the scientific impact of the Infrastructure. The scientific working groups aim to identify key science issues and produce reference books on major science themes that will bridge the gap between the results of present and past missions and the scientific preparation of the future ones. NA2 also enhances the ability of European planetary scientists to participate on the global scene with their own agenda-setting projects and ideas.
