On the request of the European Commission (EC) Directorate-Generals for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI), EFSA organized on 10 March 2016 a scientific workshop to discuss and prioritise research under the framework of H2020 and support EFSA’s efforts to develop a holistic risk assessment approach for bees. The workshop gathered representatives of the EC (DG-AGRI and DG for Health and Food Safety), the EC Joint Research Centre, the European Environmental Agency and European Medicine Agency, coordinators/representatives of EC funded research projects on bee health and pollination related topics (11 EU research framework programmes FP6-7 and two COST-Actions), the US Environmental Protection Agency, the World Organisation for Animal Health, and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
