Topic Description

Priorities of the year, objectives pursued and expected results:

Heavy episodic drinking and youth drinking, including underage drinking, are of particular concern in Europe. All age groups and both genders are affected by heavy episodic drinking. Building on previous work conducted in this area, this action should support Member States’ efforts to reduce alcohol related harm and particularly contribute to the objectives of the Member States’ action plan on Youth Drinking and on Heavy Episodic Drinking ([1]). It should generate and promote new and innovative good practices targeting the reduction of heavy episodic drinking, including amongst young adults, and underage drinking.

([1]) Action Plan on Youth Drinking and on Heavy Episodic Drinking (Binge Drinking) (2014-2016), Endorsed by the Committee on National Alcohol Policy and Action (CNAPA) on 16 September 2014,

Description of the activities to be funded under the call for proposals:

The activities should aim at testing methods/tools and at identifying good practices on reducing heavy episodic drinking including amongst young adults and underage drinking in different settings and different Member States. Priority should be given to initiatives aiming at identifying good practices of measures at population level and more targeted prevention measures like brief interventions. In addition, multi-stakeholder initiatives might be included. The activities should encourage EU networking and good practise exchange.

Implementation by the Agency, First semester of 2016
