Conceptualizing CASII

The Beginnings of the Center for Assessing Space-weather Impacts and Innovation

Download Paper

A small group of heliophysicists found themselves discussing what was needed to make transdisciplinary advancements in our research studies. Some key points were continually raised: better understanding of the needs of those impacted by space weather (and really on a more basic level, what space weather caused impacts that people affected cared about), better communication both within the research community and with people outside of our narrow area of research, and the need to create an environment that enables better, more effective uni-, inter-, multi-, and trans-disciplinary collaborations. Although aspects of these environments and efforts can be found throughout the heliophysics research community, there was not currently a place for like-minded people to foster these collaborations and research ambitions.
