Meetings of OPTIMA Work Package 6 (WP6) took place at the University of Coimbra
with the various team members and the participation of Professor Roland Clift, Emeritus Professor of Environmental Technology in the Centre for Environment and Sustainability of the University of Surrey, and widely known for his work and contributions to the topic of sustainability. In two consecutive meetings, researchers from WP6 presented and discussed the work to be carried out in OPTIMA. Prof. Clift gave his insights on the approach to be taken and emphasized the opportunities that arise from the convergence of Life Cycle Assessment, Risk Assessment and Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis representatives working together for the integrated assessment of crop protection systems.
