HELIX is an EU-funded collaborative research project assessing the potential impacts of climate change. Scientists from 16 organisations worldwide have worked together to develop a number of future scenarios of the natural and human world as a consequence of 1.5°C, 2°C, 4°C and 6°C global warming.

At HELIX we are now communicating our results to decision makers and the public to help understand what kind of climate change impacts we wish to avoid and make adapting to our changing climate more understandable and manageable.
