EPEC Annual Week Working Group

EPEC Annual Week Working Group

This Working Group is responsible for organising the EPEC Annual Week, which takes place in the spring of each year in a different location around Europe.

The EPEC Annual Week is an opportunity for the EPEC community to better get to know each other, to brainstorm on how to further develop the network in terms of the activities of its working groups and to enhance the interaction with members of the Europlanet Executive Board, who will be invited to give talks throughout the week. Furthermore, the school brings together young scientists from all EU countries and provides a networking platform where science discussion and collaboration are stimulated via a series of group activities.

Participants must either be in their final year of an MSc course (or equivalent), be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program in the field of planetary/space science or have obtained their Ph.D. qualification not earlier than 2012. Note that in order to apply to the training school you are NOT required to be a member of EPEC, although this is encouraged.

The third EPEC Annual Week was held online from 7-11 June 2021.

The second EPEC Annual Week was held at the University of Lisbon, Portugal, from 20-24 May 2019. The first EPEC Annual Week was held at the International Space University (ISU) in Strasbourg from 11-15 June 2018.
