The project is led by the Open University, UK, and has 34 beneficiary institutions from 19 European countries. The A €9.95 million project will integrate and support planetary science activities across Europe and will address key scientific and technological challenges facing modern planetary science by providing open access to state-of-the-art research data, models and facilities across the European Research Area.

The Science Office is responsible for all dissemination and engagement activities of the project. For this, it will coordinate a group of actions  such as management of the European Planetary Media Centre, management of web presence and Social Networks, production of educational videos, advice to policy-makers and training in science communication for researchers.
