KEYWORDS - Space weather policy development, economic impact, political engagement

Policy-makers around the world are now exploring how much investment governments should commit to space weather, but are also influenced by different national approaches to research. Progress in reducing space weather risks requires synergy between these economic and cultural aspects. We will promote strategic thinking in which scientists, engineers, economists and policy-makers collaborate to identify the appropriate investments in basic and applied science, and in infrastructure resilience.
