Euphresco is a network of organisations funding research projects and coordinating national research in the phytosanitary area. The overall goal of Euphresco is to support coordination and collaboration in the area of phytosanitary research, and to become a strong, long-term network of funders that fully incorporate existing and new members. Currently, Euphresco is coordinating a project on assessment and prioritisation of pathways, with partners from USA, Canada and Australia. A short description of the project can be accessed here. The kickoff meeting is being held this week (week of 16 October 2017). The project is expected to be completed in March 2018.
