Education and Outreach Committee (EOCom)

Presentation

This committee is dedicated to reaching out to the Space Weather and Space Climate community and the general public. We aim to set up a dedicated social network, to organise Space Weather and Space Climate courses and webinars, to publish a Space Weather and Space Climate book, to improve the scientific content of the E-SWAN website, and any action devoted to Space Weather and Space Climate outreach and education.

Goals

  • popularise Space Weather and Space Climate in Europe and beyond
  • distribute complementary media for dissemination of scientific knowledge
  • promote education and advanced training through continuing education opportunities within Europe
  • raise awareness to all activity sectors possibly affected by space weather and/or space climate focusing within Europe.
