EON funds are used to support research across a wide range of disciplines that falls within the scope of the following three questions: 1. How did life arise on Earth? 2. How common is life in the Universe? 3. What fundamental principles explain the emergence of Life?
In addition to work by EON researchers and postdocs, and EON-affiliated centers and scientists, eight USD50k Seed Grants will be awarded to collaborations from anywhere in the world, to develop independent ideas related to the Origins of Life. Updates and outcomes of supported research are reported below.
