Welcome to the UK Space Weather & Space Environment Meeting II: Celebrating 10-years of 24/7 space-weather operational forecasting in the UK. This is the second UK-focussed meeting and falls a decade after the stand-up of the Met Office Space Weather Operations Centre (MOSWOC). This meeting will provide an opportunity to look back and celebrate, at a time when much important new capability has been delivered through the SWIMMR (Space Weather Instrumentation, Measurement, Modelling and Risk) programme. Utilising SWIMMR outputs, we are poised for a major uplift in our ability to Assess, Prepare for and Respond [1] to severe space weather events.

With a UK core, the meeting will be outward looking, where we welcome international participation and is one of an ongoing series planned for forthcoming years. This in recognition of the spirit of multinational collaboration which needs to be at the heart of enhanced understanding of, and resilience to space weather.

The long-term purpose of this new series of UK Space Weather & Space Environment Meetings is to bring together space safety scientists, engineers, forecasters, end-users, and policy makers across the various UK interests and activities.  This year’s meeting will have focus on next steps beyond the SWIMMR Programme, of embedding enduring Research to Operations to Research (R2O2R) and seizing opportunities to drive further advances going forward.

 We very much look forward to welcoming you to Exeter this September!
