NA2 Science Networking
NA2 focuses on determining the major goals of current and future European planetary science, relating them to the Research Infrastructure that Europlanet RI is developing, and placing them in a more global context. An integrated system of personnel exchanges, workshops and training groups is being established to improve the scientific impact of this Infrastructure. The scientific working groups aim to identify key science issues and produce reference books on major science themes that will bridge-the-gap between the results of present-past missions and the scientific preparation of the future ones. NA2 also enhances the ability of European planetary scientists to participate on the global scene with their own agenda-setting projects and ideas.

NA2 Expert Exchange Program
The objective of this Expert Exchange Programme is to support the activities of Europlanet RI with experts whenever it is needed. The programme provides funding for expert short visits (up to one week) with the goal of improving infrastructure facilities and services offered to the scientific community by Europlanet participant (contractor) laboratories or institutes.
Detailed information on Expert Exchange calls is available here.
