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

EMCDDA conference

15 years of monitoring

In 2009, the EMCDDA will commemorate 15 years of monitoring the drug phenomenon in Europe. To mark the occasion, the agency will organise a high-level conference in Lisbon in the spring to reflect on past achievements and future challenges.

The objectives of the two-day event are to: reinforce relationships and increase collaboration between the agency and the research and expert community; and analyse how the field of research science communicates with that of policy. Europe’s information needs and key concerns for the next decade will lie at the heart of the discussions.

The event will bring together international organisations, EU institutions and experts active in the drugs field to share experience, knowledge and know-how. Targeted specifically at policy-makers, practitioners and researchers, this by-invitation event will combine plenary sessions and thematic breakout groups.
