We are pleased to announce a meeting under the COSY COST Action (Confined Molecular Systems, CA21101, for grant period 2, aimed at uniting the community of astrochemists and researchers focused on the interactions of molecular systems relevant to astrochemistry and astrobiology.
The event is organized by the leaders of Working Groups 1 and 5, Professor Piotr Żuchowski and Professor Lauri Halonen. It serves as a platform for fostering collaboration, sharing insights, and discussing the latest research within these pivotal fields.
We particularly encourage younger scientists, including PhD students, junior faculty members, and postdocs, to join us. This is an excellent opportunity for emerging scholars to engage with leading experts, gain new insights, and contribute to the future of astrochemistry and astrobiology.
