AMPHORA - Alcohol Measures for Public Research Alliance, Seventh Framework Programme, 223059 –SFP (2008-2011).

The European Alcohol Policy Research Alliance

Taking into account the European research gap for effective policy-making, AMPHORA has created the European Alcohol Policy Research Alliance. Internationally renowned experts are engaged in the analysis of scarcely explored or non-explored noteworthy areas of alcohol consumption and alcohol-related harm, shared out in 9 interdependent work packages.

These areas include existing interventions and policies, socio-cultural determinants, advertisement, taxes, pricing, availability, access, early diagnosis and treatment, drinking environments and surrogate and illegal products.

IREFREA has actively participated in the development of WP7 – Analyzing the drinking environments and alcohol related harm and reducing the harm from surrogate and illegally produced alcohol – led by Karen Hughes – Liverpool John Moores University. The first element in this work package pursues the identification of key factors in drinking environments associated with alcohol-related harm. The second complementary element will collect untaxed alcoholic beverages to examine their alcohol content and other potentially health-threatening contaminants.

Translating science into policy

The final goal of AMPHORA is the translation of science into policy trough easily understandable conclusions and recommendations.

AMPHORA aspires to strengthen the European research base on the impact of public health measures and interventions. This will enable a better guidance for integrated policy-making aimed at reducing the harm done by alcohol.

To ensure scientific findings correspond to the policy needs, two expert and counterpart meetings and a European Alcohol Policy conference will be held at the time that these countries hold the Presidency of the European Union.
