The European Commission’s seventh research framework programme is funding a major research initiative on addiction under its ‘Cooperation’ programme. The challenges that contemporary European society faces from drugs and other addictions are being analysed under the ‘Addictions and lifestyles in contemporary Europe — reframing addictions project’ (ALICE RAP), which brings together researchers from 25 countries. The project’s budget of EUR 10 million will be used to fund research into all aspects of addiction, under the headings ownership of addiction, counting addiction, determinants of addiction, business of addiction, governance of addiction and addicting the young.

For more information, see the ALICE RAP website.
