Eranid Coordination of Research on illicit drugs Contact us


The Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) provides a framework for multinational collaboration in the field of illicit drugs research focusing on socio-economic and humanities research and both supply and demand. With the publication of the SRA the next phase of the ERANID project starts: the launching of common calls in 2015, based on shared research priorities.

The draft Strategic Research Agenda was presented in Brussels at the last Horizontal Drugs Group meeting of 2014, held on December 10th, and it has been very well received by its members.

The International Invitational Conference held in Lisbon on October 1st and 2nd, 2014 provided valuable feedback on the proposed priority themes for research on illicit drugs.
