Notice: Cancellation of NASA Astrobiology Summer School 2020
We have been monitoring the outbreak and spread of COVID-19 and, after consultation with our partners at the Centro de Astrobiologia, we regretfully have come to the conclusion that we must cancel the 2020 Josep Comas i Solà International Astrobiology Summer School. For any students who applied, we thank you for your interest and application, and hope that you will consider participating in next year’s school. Please also subscribe to the NASA Astrobiology Program mailing list, https://astrobiology.nasa.gov/mailing-list/ to be kept up to date with other opportunities.


The Josep Comas i Solà International Astrobiology Summer School is co-sponsored by the NASA Astrobiology Program and the Centro de Astrobiologia. Held annually in Santander, Spain, it has become a tradition in the astrobiology community. The week-long program for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows provides lectures from international experts, round-table discussions, student projects, night-sky observations, and a half-day field trip to a nearby site of astrobiological interest.

In 2020, the school will be held from June 15 – 19, 2020, and the focus will be Searching for Life on Mars: Techniques and Challenges

This event has been cancelled
