The new EU Horizon 2020 project PoshBee (http://poshbee.eu) aims to support healthy bee populations, sustainable beekeeping and pollination, since bees face many threats and are often in decline.

Major results (http://poshbee.eu/about) are foreseen until the end of the project in 2023. Through the development of innovative protocols and novel model systems, PoshBee will assess toxicity and dynamics of key agrochemicals and their mixtures, and provide key information for the development of improved policy and regulations for the safe and sustainable use of agrochemicals in Europe.
