Event description
Early-career scientists are driving the next era of extrasolar science with the Twinkle Space Mission.

About this event

This virtual conference will focus on extrasolar research driven by early-career scientists. During the event, researchers across Europe will showcase their exciting research and illustrate how their work is supporting the new epoch of exoplanet characterisation.

Read the talk abstracts.

We will also highlight new opportunities for students to gain access to time on the Twinkle space mission and participate in Twinkle activities.

Any early career researchers interested in talking at the conference can send a title and a short abstract to Talking slots are limited so please send these as soon as possible.
