The European Drugs Summer School (EDSS) will switch to remote teaching this year in an effort to help curb the spread of COVID-19 and reduce pressure on health services.
The 2020 EDSS — organised by the EMCDDA and the University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL) — will run from 29 June to 10 July. Under the general theme ‘Illicit drugs in Europe: demand, supply and public policies’, the 2020 course will provide a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of the drugs problem in Europe and beyond. The focus this year will be on hepatitis C. 23.04.2020
Crucial information on the impact of COVID-19 on people who use drugs, and on the services that support them, will be collected via a special round of the European Web Survey on Drugs, launched this week. The survey — the Mini European Web Survey on Drugs: COVID-19 — is coordinated by the EMCDDA in collaboration with its Reitox network of national focal points. 16.04.2020
