DURING THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2021-2022, THE EUROPEAN ASTROBIOLOGY INSTITUTE (EAI) WILL OFFER THE EAI ACADEMY, WHICH CONSISTS OF A SERIES OF 16 DIDACTIC TALKS ON THE TOPICS: “TRIPS TO THE OUTER SOLAR SYSTEM”; “HABITABILITY OF EXOPLANETS”; “LIFE IN THE DARK” AND “COEVOLUTION OF PLANETARY GEOSPHERES, ATMOSPHERES AND BIOSPHERES”.
The seminars will be offered for free and will be streamed online every two weeks on Wednesday from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. CET (starting October 13, 2021). Each session will include a 30-40 minute didactic talk given by an expert. The talk will be followed by about 20 minutes of questions and answers.
EAI Academy seminars will be broadcast online via zoom. The sessions will be hosted by the Centro de Astrobiología (CAB).
The CAB will deliver a certificate of participation to those who attend at least 5 seminars. The audience registration will take place, during each session, in the zoom session chat where each member of the audience will include their full name and email for our registration. The individual final certificate will include each of the seminars the applicant has attended.
The seminars will be recorded and made available permanently on the CAB YouTube channel.
Course details (confirmed dates, and abstracts) will be announced here in due course:
