Workshop on EU/US Opportunities in Space Weather Research


YOU'RE INVITED!

To a workshop on 

Research opportunities in space weather in the European Union and the United States 

9 December 2018

2:00pm to 5:30pm, followed by a happy hour 

Washington DC, National Academies of Science

Space weather is a global issue where extreme events may disrupt the operation of and cause damage to space assets and critical terrestrial infrastructures on which our daily lives depend, without regard for borders. The United States and the European Union have invested in research to better forecast and model space weather events and are investing in the provision of operational services to user communities.

With the "space weather" call for proposals for Horizon 2020 now open until 12 March 2019 and research opportunities available with NASA and the National Science Foundation, this workshop offers an opportunity for researchers on both sides of the Atlantic to learn about opportunities to combine EU and U.S. efforts in order to deliver better services for the forecasting and mitigation of extreme space weather events.
