Probabilistic approaches for assessing environmental risks of pesticides
Welcome to EUFRAM!
This is the home page for EUFRAM, a collaborative project funded by the European Commission from 2003 - 2006.
Environmental risks of pesticides must be assessed before they can be authorised for sale in the EU.
The goal of EUFRAM is to improve these risk assessments by introducing "probabilistic" approaches. Click here for a brief explanation of probabilistic approaches.
