AstroSocio Resource Centre

All you ever wanted to know about societal aspects of astrobiology in one place.

The mission of the digital European Astrobiology and Society Resource Centre (EASRC) is to provide an inclusive online access to astrobiology information and in doing so to enhance the public understanding of astrobiology as a multi-disciplinary science.

This project builds on work of the Working Group 5: History and Philosophy of Astrobiology, COST Action TD1308 Origins and evolution of life on Earth and in the Universe. Our aim is to keep the momentum of the TD1308 and include works of the European Astrobiology Network Association (EANA) and Nordic Network of Astrobiology to make the knowledge generated through the projects available to wider professional audiences as well as to astrobiologists themselves.

The ambition of this project is to set up a framework for European online astrobiology information centre dedicated to raising awareness of astrobiology research and its societal aspects, and to provide access to quality scientific information to any interested subject now and in the future.

The centre was founded on March 02, 2018 by Dr. Klara Anna Capova and Prof. Elias Chatzitheodoridis with one ambition: to set up an European online astrobiology resource framework dedicated to raising awareness of astrobiology research and related space sciences and their societal aspects, and to provide access to quality scientific information to any interested subject now and in the future.
