  • Third European Conference on Addictive Behaviours and Dependencies


    The Lisbon Addictions 2019 (23-25 October 2019) is a multidisciplinary conference that provides a forum for networking across the addictions. With over 1500 participants this is a great opportunity to share the results of the research projects of Eranid and discuss the implications for research and policy with the audience.

  • Meetup with Dutch ERANID projects - September 13th


    On September 13th, 5 Dutch ERANID partners came together to exchange knowledge and experiences on illicit drug research, to share preliminary results and to discuss how to increase societal impact of research findings.

  • European drug survey to investigate recovery


    A new European survey aimed at understanding how drug addicts have achieved successful recovery has been launched. The Life in Recovery survey is part of the REC-Path project, which is investigating different types of recovery from drug addiction across four countries in Europe (England, Scotland, Belgium and the Netherlands) in order to give policymakers a strong evidence base for making future policy and legislation related to drug addiction and recovery. The REC-Path survey was launched at a special event at Sheffield Hallam University, attended by policy advisers, commissioners, recovery specialists, researchers and people in recovery from across Europe.

  • Providing hope for addicts and their relatives


    Project leader David Best of Sheffield Hallam University hopes that investigating different kinds of recovery pathways in four countries will show that addicts can have a healthy future. ‘More than half of addicts manage to kick drugs permanently. We will investigate how they do it and how we can best support them.’

  • The impact of drug policy on society


    Every country in Europe has its own drug policy. The ERANID project ‘Illicit Drug Policies and Social Outcome’ (IDPSO) will study the societal impact of policy. Not in order to compare countries, but to show policymakers the potential impact of the choices they make.

  • Research from perspective of addicts


    The ERANID-funded project D.U.R.E.S.S. focuses on the experience of people suffering from addiction during recovery and reintegration. Or, in the words of Giuseppe Carrà of Italy, ‘It’s about their personal subjective perspective’.

  • Drugs don’t know borders


    By the end of 2016, Henk Garretsen, chairman of ERANID was interviewed by Science Impact. Science Impact is a magazine that informs the general public in an accessible way about the developments in the different areas of science.
