The Europlanet Consortium was formed in 2013 and included over 100 organisational members linked through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that agreed cooperation for the mutual benefit of European planetary science. The Europlanet Consortium MoU expired in August 2018 and will not be renewed. The consortium has now been superseded by institutional membership of the Europlanet Society.
The Europlanet Society promotes the advancement of European planetary science and related fields for the benefit of the community. The Society is open to anyone with a serious interest in planetary science, including researchers, industry, amateur astronomers, educators and outreach providers from European countries and around the world.
