The Canadian Astrobiology Network

The Canadian Astrobiology Network (CAN) is an organization of institutions and researchers across Canada who are actively engaged in astrobiological research. The CAN builds on the Canadian Astrobiology Training Program – a six-year ~$1.5M program funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada through the Collaborative Research and Training Program. The goal of CAN is to foster collaboration and integration between Canadian scientists and NAI (NASA Astrobiology Institute) partner institutions in the U.S. and around the world.
