- to raise awareness of the European drug problem, in general, and the role of the EMCDDA, in particular, via a broad yet targeted dissemination of the information produced by the Centre with a clear brand image;
- to promote the EMCDDA as a centre of excellence among drug experts, researchers and practitioners by producing information of a high scientific standard.
