Event Description

The aim of the course is to give participants a thorough overview of the historical, philosophical and ethical questions arising in this field. It is co-organised by the Nordic Network of Astrobiology and the EU COST Action "Origins and Evolution of Life on Earth and in the Universe". The course is open for students and scientists in humanities, natural, social and political sciences. It will, amongst others deal with the following themes:

  • Definition of life in a historical and philosophical context
  • Biochemical evolution
  • The tree of biological evolution
  • Search for life outside Earth
  • Philosophical, ethical and political questions arising with the quest for life on other celestial bodies


A multitude of highly merited researchers have agreed to teach at the course: (see the course website for details). The deadline for application is 15 January 2015 23:59:00 UTC

Bursaries for students and early career scientists (up to 8 years after their Ph. D.) from most European countries (see homepage for details) are available.
 
Please also spread information about the course to possibly interested people at your institution.
