EPEC@EPSC represents early career researchers at EPSC, ensures that the conference programme is attractive to them, and that they find their way through the meeting with ease.

The Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) brings together scientists from the fields of planetary and space research every autumn. The meeting covers all disciplines from space instrumentation to data analysis and modelling. The goal of EPSC@EPSC is to help early career researchers build a strong network and provide opportunities and tools related to presenting research.
