The European Astrobiology Institute (EAI) is a consortium of European research and higher education institutions and organisations as well as other stakeholders aiming to carry out research, training, outreach and dissemination activities in astrobiology in a comprehensive and coordinated manner and thereby securing a leading role for the European Research Area in the field.

- Can graduate students of other biological majors get postdoc at an astrobiology laboratory? Or do you have to take a PhD in astrobiology?
So far, I am not aware of any Ph.D.s in astrobiology, so any related field should be OK.
- What is the name(s) of the summer school(s) and how often do they take place?
We have usually different subjects and tend to repeat summer schools every 4-5 years to give every student a chance to attend. Please check the EAI website for announcements.
- Where can I find the videos of the astrobiology lectures?
You can find some here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAdvOFo8AkWq3tp_UeReZ3w
- Can you please give us more information about Horizon 2020 Research Infrastructure Starting Community?
This is a proposal submitted in spring and we will hear the decision in October. Keep your fingers crossed!
- Can international students apply for the summer schools or internships?
For our summer schools we accept students from all over the world.
- Will the information on the summer school be available on the EAI website?
- What would roughly be the qualifications for being a part of the working group?
You should be a student or scientist in a related field. The decision to accept members, however, rests with the Working Group Leader.
