New project SWATNET is described in an article in Urania - the journal of Polish Astronomical Society. Two researchers from the Department of Theoretical Physics UMCS: Stefaan Poedts and Krzysztof Murawski are involved in this international project.
The team of Krzysztof Murawski and Stefaan Poedts received EU funding for the implementation of the space weather project, worth over EUR 3 million from the Horizon 2020 Programme.
The project with the acronym SWATNET aims to make a breakthrough in understanding the physical basis of the key cosmic weather factors affecting the Earth. The consortium consists of nine beneficiaries and seven partner organisations from seven different European countries with diverse and complementary expertise. The Project coordinator is University of Helsinki from Finland. On the part of the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, the key investigators will be Krzysztof Murawski and Stefaan Poetds, who is employed at the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University as part of the Research in Lublin initiative.
Thanks to the project, the next generation of heliophysicists will be trained, among other things by developing and applying a new methodology that can be used to discover the basic physical processes taking place in the solar atmosphere and contributing to space weather. The project will last for 4 years and has a total budget of more than €3 million.
