Her role involves;  Coordinating and monitoring the ESA Space Weather Applications Pilot Project together with ESA staff. The Pilot Project consists of a network of 18 activities with Agency funding, plus several activities with independent funding. The aim of these activities is to develop a coordinated network of Space Weather applications services in Europe and also to gauge the costs and benefits for Europe of a potential future Space Weather applications programme.  She is responsible for following the day-to-day technical progress of each of these activities and ensuring good communication and information exchange between all parties. She is responsible for the coordination and organisation of the annual ESA Space Weather Workshops. Together with colleagues from the Space Environments and Effects Analysis Section, she organised workshops in 2001, 2002 and 2003 and led the local organising committee for the First European Space Weather Week, 2004.  She is the Executive Secretary of the ESA Space Weather Working Team (SWWT).
