The LASSIE network is a consortium of 13 institutions and 7 commercial associates that brings together leading European researchers in observational, experimental and computational surface and solid state astrochemistry, with experts in public engagement and industrial partners developing relevant laboratory instrumentation and computational software. It is funded under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme as a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN), and seeks to address the key issue of the interaction of the astronomical gas phase with the dust that pervades the Universe. It supports 28 early stage (postgraduate level) researcher and 4 experienced (first postdoctoral level) researcher positions, and provides for extensive training and outreach activities over a four year duration.
