This talk will focus on the project CAESAR (Comprehensive spAce wEather Studies for the ASPIS prototype Realization), which is aimed at tackling the relevant aspects of Space Weather (SWE) science and realize the prototype of the scientific data centre for Space Weather of the Italian Space Agency (ASI) called ASPIS (ASI SPace Weather InfraStructure). To this end, CAESAR involves a great part of the SWE Italian community, bringing together 10 Italian
institutions as partners, and a total of 95 researchers. CAESAR adopts an unprecedented, multidisciplinary, and integrated approach, encompassing the whole chain of phenomena from the Sun to the Earth up to planetary environments. A case study of a well-observed “target SWE event”, exhibiting extreme SWE characteristics from several perspectives, will be presented in
order to showcase the CAESAR approach. CAESAR investigations synergistically exploit a great variety of different products (datasets, codes, models), both long-standing and novel, that will be made available in the ASPIS prototype. It will unify multiple SWE resources through a flexible and adaptable architecture and will integrate currently available international SWE assets to foster scientific studies and advance forecasting capabilities.
