Space Weather Centers of Excellence (ROSES 2022)

Funding Agency:
National Aeronautics and Space Administration

The Space Weather Centers of Excellence (SWxC) element is part of an integrated multi-agency initiative to advance the science and technology of space weather. The SWxC program element is envisioned as supporting multi-institution, multi-/inter-/trans- disciplinary collaborations (hereinafter Centers) that address grand challenge goals of space weather, and which are ambitious in scope and transformative in nature. This program is intended to support research that cannot be effectively done by individual investigators or small teams, instead requiring the synergistic, coordinated efforts of a research center. With this motivation, this SWxC program element takes advantage of lessons learned from ongoing and past science centers, the growing body of information on team science, and a coordinated national effort to improve space weather capabilities and preparedness.
