Workshop on Best Practice Models for Addiction Prevention Projects funded under the Health Programme Agenda
Luxembourg, 25-26 January 2010

The Executive Agency for Health and Consumers of the European Commission held the “Workshop on Best Practice Models for Addiction Prevention Projects funded under the Health Programme Agenda” in Luxembourg on the 25th and 26th of January, 2010.

Through the presentation of diverse projects on Addiction Prevention and more specifically on Tobacco, Alcohol and Illicit Drugs Prevention, the workshop aimed at exchanging knowledge on best practices and methodologies used. Furthermore, its main issue was the establishment of synergies between projects, the sharing of methods for assessing best/good practices and results and the orientation of policies to be developed and implemented at MS and European level, with a special focus on addiction prevention. The reinforcement of cooperation between European institutions, and Member States organizations through developing collaborations between project-related experts was an additional value.

Ms Dina Zota and Ms Afroditi Veloudaki participated in the workshop on behalf of Prolepsis Institute and presented the EU funded project entitled “ eu Families and Adolescents Quit Tobacco – euFAQT”. euFAQT is a 3 year project aiming to complement EU policies on smoking prevention and cessation by adding to the knowledge about smoking prevention and cessation in adolescents. It seeks to create a culture of prevention by promoting the benefits of smoke free environments, de-normalizing smoking and facilitating efforts for cessation.

Valuable information was shared with other projects and important synergies were developed.
