Forecasts for the Euclid: from validation to updated Figure of Merit and beyond

Euclid is the next big thing to happen in the near future for observational cosmology. The joint use of both galaxy clustering and cosmic shear data will provide narrow constraintson the dark energy equation of state also discriminating between General Relativity and Modified Gravity. Forecasting the accuracy on cosmological parameters is usually done relying on the Fisher matrix approach. We review the recent results of the Inter Science Working Group Taskforce for Forecasts (IST:F) discussing the validation process and the updated estimates of the Euclid Figure of Merit (FoM). We also present the roadmap towards more and more realistic forecasts and some preliminary results.
