Network on drug use modelling

This European expert network aims to apply statistical and dynamic modelling in the field of drug use research, in order to develop methods and tools for policy relevant analysis of drug data. The network was funded by the European Commission's Targeted Socio-economic Research (TSER) programme(Research Directorate General). The full title of the project is "European Network to develop policy relevant modelsand socio-economic analyses of drug use, consequences and interventions". The funding covered three years of work,from December 1998 to December 2001.

General aims are:

  • to promote information exchange on new methods to estimate the extent and consequences of drug use;
  • to improve policy relevance of modelling in the drugs field;
  • to stimulate scientific publications and proposals for in-depth studies. For a list of publications related to the network, click here (17KB).
