2013, May - Brussels: Awareness Week on Alcohol-Related Harm
A group of organisations came together to raise awareness among EU policy makers of alcohol-related harms by initiating the first European Awareness Week on Alcohol-Related Harm (AWARH’13), that was held from 13 to 17 May 2013. The AWARH’13, which had the participation and contribution of several AMPHORA researchers, aims to highlight the negative effects of alcohol and call for greater action to address the problems it can cause.
Throughout the Week, several events and actions were organised to encourage policy-makers and citizens to state their commitment to tackle alcohol-related harm and show support to address one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in Europe.
AMPHORA is a four-year, Europe-wide project which will enhance the state of the art in research for European alcohol policy by providing new scientific evidence for the most effective public health measures to reduce the harm done by alcohol. AMPHORA will enhance cooperation between researchers and disciplines and improve the translation of science into policy throughout Europe.
AMPHORA is a collaborative research project funded under the Seventh Framework Program of the European Commission (FP7) and is coordinated by the Hospital Clínic i Provincial de Barcelona (HCPB) in Catalonia, Spain.
