NextGEMS is building prototypes for a new generation of Earth system models to advance science, guide policy, and inform applications to support the sustainable management of our planet. As a collaborative European project funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme, NextGEMS will tap expertise from fourteen European Nations to develop two next generation (storm-resolving) Earth-system Models, one being the ICON model developed at MPI-M.

Through breakthroughs in simulation realism, these models will allow us to understand and reliably quantify how the climate will change on a global and regional scale, and how the weather, including its extreme events, will look like in the future.
