The Laboratoire de Planétologie et Géosciences (LPG) from Nantes Université has gained a worldwide reputation in research in planetary geosciences, thanks to its involvement in many space exploration missions, through collaborations with international partners, including space agencies and industrial partners that provide space instrumentation. It is involved in 13 space missions investigating planetary bodies of the solar system for at least the next 5 years.

The University of Coimbra, with its Master in Astrophysics and Space Instrumentation ascribed to the Physics and the Mathematics departments, does promote interchange between Space Sciences and companies of Space Instrumentation. The CITEUC is a research center dedicated to research on the Solar System as a whole and at all scales. This results in highly interdisciplinary aspects, for the study of different bodies including Venus, Earth, Mars, Titan, and smaller bodies.
