The EUropean Heliospheric FORecasting Information Asset (EUHFORIA) is a new 3D magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) space weather prediction tool (Pomoell and Poedts, 2018). EUHFORIA models solar wind and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) all the way from the Sun to 2 AU. It consists of two different domains; the coronal part, which extends from the solar surface to 0.1 AU and the heliospheric part, which covers the spatial domain from 0.1 AU onwards. In this work, we focus on the solar wind modeling and we show how we try to improve the predictions with our model.
