The European Lunar Symposium (ELS), a meeting that soon became annual, is held every year, since 2012, in a different city in Europe. ELS is a meeting and interaction point for scientists and engineers, academics and industry, from Europe and all over the world.
Lunar exploration is undergoing a new global surge, and many are the current interests in the exploration of the Moon: astronomical, astrophysical, geological, commercial, resource utilisation, and strategic considerations, to its use as an outpost for future human exploration of the Solar System.
ELS brings together the European scientific and technical communities interested in various aspects of lunar exploration. In addition, lunar experts from countries engaged in launching lunar missions are also invited to attend this meeting.
