NoRCEL is a truly global network of scientists, researchers, students and lay people coming together to work to investigate and fathom some of the most multi-faceted aspects of - and elusive challenges facing the scientific world.
We have an inclusive ethos that is both welcoming and encouraging for everyone of our members.
Starting out with a mission statement almost a decade ago which focusses on promoting the dissemination of research information relating to the chemical evolution of life, our aims have now evolved to include exploring global issues, as in our Blue Earth project, as well as developing educational tools to enable wider access to the field of astroscience, especially in the Global South.

NoRCEL has been established with the aim of kick-starting a debate amongst those practitioners who are directly involved in the theoretical aspects and experimental studies pertaining to the origin of life, and those scientists who traditionally work in other fields. We encourage you to join the network and come together at our meetings in order to air, share and debate their ideas under one roof. It is our fervent desire that our regular conferences, reports and published papers will assist in expediting a better understanding of the origin of life on the Earth.
