As societal reliance on space infrastructure increases along with the sensitivity of many economic sectors to the effects of Space Weather (SWE), the all-round delivery of operational SWE services will become of crucial importance. 

This ESPI Report provides an in-depth investigation of the steps that need to be taken on the technical, market and organisational fronts in order to ensure a sustainable provision of operational SWE services within the European context. The study translates the complexity within SWE science, technologies, and plethora of connected institutions into a structured policy-oriented analysis that provides a clear-eyed view of the stakes and requirements associated with the delivery of operational SWE services.
