The EAI ACADEMY is an international educational program broadcasted by the Centro de Astrobiología (CAB, CSIC-INTA), Madrid. It provides a framework to meet online with the European astrobiology community and to acquire interdisciplinary knowledge through a series of seminars given by experts in these fields.
