Exoplanets: The hope of life beyond Earth


This month’s special feature focuses on EU-funded exoplanet research projects that hope to lift the veil on the mysteries of planet formation or provide more detailed information on their potential habitability.

It is followed by the usual eight sections providing insights into biology and medicine, social sciences and humanities, energy and transport, the environment and society, IT and telecommunications, industrial technologies, security and safety, and space, along with a list of upcoming events hosted by or involving EU-funded research projects.
