Abstract: Solar Particle Events (SPEs) of the 23rd Solar Cycle detected by the ESA Standard Radiation Environment Monitor (SREM) onboard the INTEGRAL satellite have been studied in order to find their connection to solar sources. X-ray, optical and radio data of solar flares that were observed by several space-based instruments during the aforementioned solar cycle have been selected. The data were reduced and thoroughly analyzed in order to establish the corresponding solar origin of the selected SPEs. The extensive scientific analysis has produced clear correlations with X class solar flares for the events of the October-November 2003, January 2005 and December 2006 periods while for the events that occurred during September 2005, correlations with X class flares are possible but not straightforward due to the complexity of the registered solar particle fluxes.
