The FP7 project ’Human Cystic Echinococcosis ReseArch in CentraL and Eastern Societies’ (HERACLES), developed between 2013 and 2018 by nine partners in five countries, is one of the largest projects on cystic echinococcosis. Here we present the core HERACLES achievements, which should help to foster the translation of scientific investigations on health policies.
