Some internal research is done, often with the support of Stagiaires, Research Fellows or Young Graduate Trainees.
We have been investigating establishment of a European Space Weather Applications Programme. Currently a pilot project with many space weather applications is running. Previous studies have looked at the user requirements and possible space segment architectures.
We are always keen to have the views of the European space community (especially industry) and others on the directions we should pursue.
Refer to ESA's EMITS system for intended Invitations to Tender. If you have comments or ideas concerning technology research in the space environments and effects area, please feel free to contact V. Ferlet-Cavrois. Inputs from member state organisations are particularly welcome
