Euphresco coordinates the activities of national research funders and it is not a funding body per se. Scientists interested to participate in Euphresco projects should explore the possibility to be supported by the official member organisation(s) in their country or other research programme owners or managers.
Euphresco members support applied research activities in relatively small projects of short to medium length duration (1–3 years), i.e. enabling rapid and customised answers for quarantine plant pests. Conversely, other sources of funding such as the EU Framework Programme funding are more appropriate for larger and/or more strategic projects that will typically have a wider EU benefit and context. This is reflected in the research agenda developed by Euphresco with inputs also from its various policy and scientific stakeholders.
