Abstract: Extreme space weather has a global footprint and can affect multiple critical infrastructures at the same time. An event of such magnitude could overwhelm a single nation’s response capacity. Further efforts in research, and national and international coordination in preparedness and response are required. This report summarises the key findings of a Summit aimed to identify gaps in the protection of critical infrastructures from extreme space weather and proposes a way forward on how to improve the resilience of infrastructures and society that depends on them.
