Focus Groups

Astrobiology Focus Groups are open to the entire astrobiology community. Each addresses a topical area of particular community interest. Focus Groups provide venues for developing research areas across the broad astrobiology community, stimulating new areas of research, promoting long-distance collaborations, and contributing to astrobiology space missions. The NAI supports Focus Groups on behalf of the NASA Astrobiology Program, including the funding of workshops, field trips, and/or other activities that support the Group’s objectives.

Since 1999, the NAI has coordinated and supported 18 Astrobiology Focus Groups. The chart below shows the activities of those groups.
