Mission statement: The mission of the Communication unit is to provide the European Union and its Member States with a high-quality and highly valued information service on the drugs phenomenon in Europe. Its principal aims are:

  • to ensure that the information produced by the Centre is tailored to the needs of its target groups, which means it must be timely, analytical, up-to-date, concise and in the right format;
  • 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.
