European University Association
The European University Association (EUA) represents more than 800 universities and national rectors’ conferences in 48 European countries. EUA plays a crucial role in the Bologna Process and in influencing EU policies on higher education, research and innovation. Through continuous interaction with a range of other European and international organisations, EUA ensures that the independent voice of European universities is heard.
The Europlanet Society promotes the advancement of European planetary science and related fields for the benefit of its community. Anyone with an active interest in planetary science is welcome to join. The Society builds on the heritage of 15 years of Europlanet projects funded by the EC and provides a sustainable legacy for these activities. It is also the parent body of the annual Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC), the largest annual meeting on planetary science in Europe.
