Javier Martín Torres appointed Sweden representative for Europlanet

Professor Javier Martín-Torres, head of the Atmospheric Science Group at Luleå University of Technology, has been invited by Europlanet to act as the national contact person of the organization in Sweden. As such, he is the responsible for communicating the planetary research carried out in Sweden to Europlanet and, in the other sense, he will be the link for Swedish planetologists to access the research developed within the organization and its facilities.
Europlanet is an European consortium of planetary scientists, supported by the European Union, which count on a wide network of state-of-the-art facilities devoted to planetary research. Its aim is to coordinate the investigations within the field by providing the means to consolidate the community through meetings and workshops (it organizes the yearly European Planetary Science Conference) and to share available resources and data to secure the optimal scientific outcomes.
