The Swedish Space Weather Center (SRC – Sveriges rymdväderscentrum) is part of the Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF). SRC is also an official Regional Warning Center (RWC) within the International Space Environment Service (ISES).

One of the primary goals are research to improve forecasts of solar storms and space weather.
