The main objective of this Action is to bring together chemical and astrophysical laboratories to focus on the molecular evolution towards complexity, from early stages of star formation to the present day Solar System. The Action will deliver data essential to our understanding of the astrophysical data now being provided by the large European instruments and deliver innovative experimental and theoretical schemes for physical chemistry at large.
