EANA (European Astrobiology Network Association) gathers some of the most important European researchers and educators. There is a conference every year, dedicated to sharing the latest news on astrobiology research. It was in EANA 2014 that I have first truly entered the Astrobiology world. Since then I have been attending every EANA conference, presenting some of my research as well. Find more about EANA conferences.
