Drugnet Europe News from the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction — October–December 2007

European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD)

ESPAD is an important source of information on drug and alcohol use among European school students and is invaluable for recording trends over time. The use of standardised methods and instruments among nationally representative samples of school students aged 15–16 years provides a high-quality and comparable data set. Participation in ESPAD has grown with each survey, and both EU and non-EU countries participate. In 1995, a total of 26 European countries participated, in 1999 the survey involved 30 countries and in 2003, 35 countries. Further information can be found on the new ESPAD website.


Drugnet Europe is the EMCDDA's newsletter launched in September 1996. The newsletter provides regular and succint information on the Centre's projects and activities to a broad readership.
