The EUCLID project is developing pest management solutions across several crops for a diverse group of insects and diseases. They will be judged by how they support end-users through short-term economic benefits, longer term environmental sustainability, social impacts and consumer preferences. At a broader policy level they may also be judged in terms of how they support market introduction and maintenance of novel technologies, stimulate scientific knowledge, and promote wider economic competitiveness.

On September 8-9, 2016, the Year 2 annual meeting of the EUCLID project was hosted at Venice International University in Venice, Italy.

FAO and WHO have released new guidelines aimed at reducing the damage done by pesticides that pose especially high toxic risks to human health and the environment.
