V. 2008 "Planetary Atmospheric Electricity" is the rst publication of its kind in the Space Science Series of ISSI.
It is the result of a new and successful joint venture between ISSI and Eu- planet.
Europlanet is a network of over 110 European and U. S. laboratories deeply involved in the development of planetary sciences and support to the European planetary space exp- ration programme.
In 2004, the Europlanet consortium obtained support from the European Commission to strengthen the planetary science community worldwide, and to amplify the scienti c output, impact and visibility of the European space programme, essentially the - ropean Space Agency's Horizon 2000, Cosmic Vision programmes and their successors.
Its presentcontractwiththeCommissionextendsfrom2005to2008,andincludes7networking activities, including discipline-based working groups covering the main areas of planetary sciences. A new contract with the Commission, presently under negotiation, will extend - roplanet's activities into the period 2009-2012.
With the broad community connection made through its Discipline Working Groups and other activities, Europlanet offers an ideal base from which to identify new elds of research for planetary sciences and to stimulate coll- orative work among its member laboratories.
