The Academy is organised together with the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague and the Czech National Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Addiction within the framework of the final conference ‘Universal Prevention Curriculum (UPC) – Adapt’ project funded with the support of the European Commission. The main objective of the Reitox Academy is to engage participants with the (shorter) European version of the Universal Prevention Curriculum (EUPC) as well as to present the International Consortium of Universities for Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR) framework which delivers the full UPC. In particular, it is expected that participants can increase their understanding of the EUPC’s potential, thus motivating them to launch the EUPC in their respective countries, in a possible liaison with universities that implement the full UPC within their academic syllabi. The Academy will help participants to make a well-informed decision about future implementations of the EUPC in their countries in 2019 and beyond. All six EMCDDA-IPA6 beneficiary countries will be represented in this academy.
