Human Research on Antarctica

The European Space Agency, IPEV and PNRA are soliciting for biomedical experiments to be implemented at the Concordia station on Antarctica

In order to continue to make use of the unique characteristics of Concordia station, the Steering Committee of Concordia (representing the Italian and French National Antarctic programmes) and ESA release this joint Announcement of Opportunity for biomedical experiments to be implemented on the Concordia station and to address human research questions that are relevant to prepare for ESA’s overarching goal to enable a human mission to the Moon, Mars or beyond.

With this AO, we are soliciting for biomedical experiment addressing one or several of the following topics:

  • Analogue studies between space and Antarctic environments;
  • Research on physical countermeasures protocols (exercise, nutrition, etc.);
  • Research on the psychological and physiological adaptation processes to isolation, confinement and high altitude;
  • Research on remote or on-site medical assistance and psychological support (incl. MD training);
  • Biomedical research in the area of life support;
  • Biomedical research in the area of habitability of stations;
  • Research on the survivability in hostile environments (e.g. microbiology and human health);
  • Biomedical research on radiation.
