Fifteenth European Space Weather Week
November 5 - 9, 2018, Leuven, Belgium

Session 3 - Advancements and opportunities towards national and global resilience for space weather events: research, forecasting, and mitigation

Seth Jonas, Christopher Cannizzaro
Monday 5/11, 13:30-15:00


With increasing global awareness of space weather as a hazard, governments and the private sector have been taking actions to increase resilience: from assessing risks to mitigating consequence. Differences among infrastructure systems, interdependences, and priorities, among other things, have resulted in different approaches to address the issue. These difference present an opportunity to advance global resilience through identifying best practices, and building upon and tailoring existing approaches towards resilience. They also present the opportunity to develop collaborations to enhance resilience through joint or complementary endeavors (e.g., programs, platforms, missions, etc.). This session will provide the opportunity for presenters to showcase advances in research, observations, or analyses that can inform and enhance actions to improve resilience to the effects of space weather events. It also presents the chance for presenters to identify opportunities for additional research and collaboration to enhance resilience to the effects of space weather events.
