The second group of 25 students graduating from the European Masters in Drug and Alcohol Studies (EMDAS), will receive their diplomas at a ceremony at the EMCDDA on 30 September (1). EMDAS, a project initially funded through the EC-Lifelong Learning Programme, involves three European universities: Århus (Denmark); Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche (Spain); and Piemonte Orientale ‘A. Avogardo’ (Italy).
The first graduation ceremony took place in 2012 at the EMCDDA which, together with the European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research, was involved in shaping the multidisciplinary programme (2). The graduation will be held at the end of a two-day meeting during which students will discuss the course and their projects.
The call for applications for the third EMDAS (2014–16) is open (3).
