HEalth, Risk and Climate change: Understanding Links between Exposure, hazards and vulnerability across spatial and temporal Scales


The overall aim of HERCULES is to provide ground-breaking, yet actionable knowledge about climate related health risks. We hypothesise that certain environmental and socio-economic parameters have an impact on individual’s health. Data on these parameters are analysed together with cohort health data on several time-steps, allowing us to make conclusions about their connections. Our analyses cover the whole of Finland, while the focus area consists of the six largest cities in Finland.
