TM3 | The European Space Weather and Space Climate association and the future benefit for the community


Almost one year has passed since the foundation of the European Space Weather and Space Climate Association (E-SWAN, E-SWAN is the legacy of the "Quo Vadis, European Space Weather Community?" initiative, which was initiated during the harsh pandemic times to give the Space Weather and Space Climate community the possibility to take a major step forward in mapping out its future. In that initiative, the working groups were established to investigate the best next steps, related to the technical, statute, legal, and funding aspects of creating a new organisation.
The ambitious mission of E-SWAN is to unite, sustain, and develop Space Weather and Space Climate activities in Europe. E-SWAN will immediately be the natural host for the European Space Weather Week, for the Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate, and for the International Space Weather and Space Climate Medals.

The purpose of this session, organized by the first elected Executive Board of E-SWAN, is to inform the scientific community about the E-SWAN plans and concrete actions to fulfil its mission and to collect feedback from the community. This meeting is open to the community at large, including stakeholders, forecasters, scientists, product providers, and is open to members from any country throughout the world, although one needs to work in Europe to belong to the Executive Board. E-SWAN is also willing to liaise with all other existing bodies involved in space weather and space climate activities worldwide.
