ALICE RAP project to redefine the concept of addiction in EU

Dienstag 24. Mai 2011 von htm

LICE RAP is a new dynamic trans-disciplinary EU project which aims is to help policy makers „re-think and re-shape“ current and future approaches to the huge human and economic costs of addictions and lifestyles in Europe. This project is supported by the Catalan Ministry of Health and coordinated from the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona by Dr. Antoni Gual, head of the Hospital Clínic of Barcelona Addictions Unit. This Unit holds a broad range of expertise in the management of addictions and undertakes a number of research projects devoted to strengthening scientific and social knowledge on this topic, such as the European projects AMPHORA and ODHIN. This time, the initiative goes far beyond alcohol, and will investigate addiction in its broadest sense, including all types of substance problems and even internet gaming and gambling.

Over the next five years the ‚Addictions and Lifestyles in Contemporary Europe Reframing Addictions Project‘ (ALICE RAP) will weave the work of over 100 scientists from 67 institutions in 25 countries into a integrated evidence base for informed policy action. The research programme includes a wide range of different quantitative and qualitative scientific disciplines stretching across the humanities and social sciences and the biological and medical sciences. … (Source: Alcohol Reports, 5/23/11) eurekalert.org, 5/23/11
