The International Research School of Planetary Sciences (IRSPS) is a non-profit and independent institution devoted to research and graduate studies in the fields of planetary sciences and planetary geology.
Planetary research mainly deals with the sub-disciplines of geology, geochemistry, geophysics, petrology, and exobiology. However, the IRSPS is not limited to these subjects and it welcomes scientific contributions from any field of planetology. Also, the educational programs are not restricted to those fields and they will cover the entire spectrum of planetary disciplines by joint ventures and collaborations with other international institutions.
It is based in Pescara, Italy.
