Lay Summary (English)

Lead
Lay summary
The International Space Science Institute (ISSI) is an Institute of Advanced Studies where scientists from all over the world meet in a multi- and interdisciplinary setting to reach out for new scientific horizons. The main function is to contribute to the achievement of a deeper understanding of the results from dif-ferent space missions, ground based observations and laboratory experiments, and adding value of those results through multidisciplinary research in the framework of international collaboration.The scientific programme of ISSI is primarily focused on solar system sciences. It also includes implications of measurements in the solar system to astrophysics and cosmology on the one hand and to Earth sciences on the other. ISSI serves the national and international communities of space sciences, astrophysics, and Earth sciences with a program of Workshops and Working Groups and by hosting international teams. In the 14 years of its existence some 2600 scientists from 42 countries have participated in at least one of the ISSI activities.
