Are you interested in climate science? What about atmospheric chemistry? What about Exoplanets and the quest for life outside Earth!? Well, you are all warmly invited to join us for a special symposium bringing together scientists from a range of disciplines to talk about "Climate Science, Atmospheres and Life". We have a host of really exciting speakers from across Europe coming to this event and we hope to encourage lively discussion of opportunities and challenges for research in an interactive panel session at the end of the day.
