IMPTAM continues to participate in several international collaborative projects.

SPACECAST project was funded by the European Union's 7th Framework Programme. It's goal was to protect satellites on orbit by modelling and forecasting particle radiation.
Newer projects include SPACESTORM (EU FP7) and PROGRESS (PRediction Of Geospace Radiation Environment and Solar wind parameterS, EU Horizon2020).

IMPTAM presentation for the SpaceCast project:
    "Nowcast model of low energy electrons for charging hazards" (a powerpoint ppt file)
Presentation given at the NASA SpaceApps Challenge 2015 event in Mikkeli:
    "Using realtime data from NASA satellites" (ppt)
