Solar Terrestrial Centre of Excellence (STCE)

The Solar Terrestrial Centre of Excellence (STCE) is a project of the Belgian government aiming at the creation and continual support of a centre of international experts in the field of space, solar, and geophysical sciences. The STCE main objective is the integration of the expertise in these sciences of the three leading Belgian institutes (ROBRMIBISA) and further consolidation of this expertise via active international cooperation. Another key objective is the valorization of the products and services that are being developed in the frame of the STCE.

The Ionosphere and Space Weather (ISW) Section of the Royal Meteorological Institute (RMI) participates in the STCE project with work package RMI-C "Ionospheric Activity and Effects":

  • RMI-C1: Monitoring, modelling, and forecasting the ionospheric activity
  • RMI-C2: Ionospheric effects on radiowave propagation, communications and GNSS-based applications
