The European Space Weather Week: a pivotal moment for our community (by Luca Spogli, President of E-SWAN)

It's a hot time for the European Space Weather Week in Toulouse. Thanks to the tremendous effort of the Program Committee and Local Organizing Committee, several important announcements have recently been made. These include a call for abstracts and topical discussion meetings, financial support for students (PhD, MSc, BSc) from countries on the DAC list, as well as satellite events. Notably, the E-SWAN School and E-SWAN Sustainability Workshop, organized respectively by the E-SWAN Working Groups "Education and Outreach Proto-Committee" and "Sustainability." Active participation in the European Space Weather Week holds significant importance in strengthening our relevant community. This annual event serves as a critical platform for scientists, researchers, engineers, and stakeholders to convene, exchange knowledge, and collaborate on advancing our understanding and preparedness for space weather phenomena. It plays a vital role in fostering progress in this field. I look forward to meeting you there!

Luca Spogli,

President of E-SWAN
