Radio observations of the Sun and the interplanetary medium provide effective diagnostics on the relevant plasma domains and perturbations that affect them.  In particular, the main originating agents of Space Weather, e.g., solar flares, eruptive prominences, CMEs, ionospheric disturbances, and Solar Wind streams emit radio waves and/or interfere with radio waves from which the resulting signals can be used as proxies in now-casting and/or forecasting activities.  Solar radio indices are used in ionospheric and atmospheric models as indicators of enhanced EUV radiation inputs as well as to identify possible RFIs to radio communication systems and GNSS receivers.  Hence, radio observations from both the ground and from space have an ever-increasing role in Space-Weather applications. 
Both dedicated and non-dedicated radio instruments have been considered in this framework, such as LOFAR and ultimately, the SKA and radio space borne satellite interferometry. 

This session is aimed at providing the state-of-the-art about the operational scenario of radio instruments for Space Weather with special attention to the required services and the forthcoming new facilities as we look to the future.
