The International Polar Year (IPY) and International Heliophysical Year (IHY) initiatives left an important heritage in terms of data sharing, expertise exchange and increasing awareness of the current scientific capabilities. In particular, the GWSWF SCAR Action Group took advantage of the Interhemispheric Conjugacy Effects in Solar-Terrestrial and Aeronomy Research (ICESTAR) and the Polar Earth Observing Network (POLENET) experiences that lead to creation of working groups on specific themes such as the use of geodetic data to study weather and space weather events. The multidisciplinary approach of IPY is the key in overcoming relevant difficulties, above all, the poor coverage of Antarctica. GRAPE Expert group intend to continue to follow this route, intensifying the efforts to build a robust network of collaborations in order to answer a variety of space weather related needs through ad hoc data sharing and model development.
