Final Report - AMPHORA (Alcohol Measures for Public Health Research Alliance)

Project ID: 223059
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report of the AMPHORA project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The aim of the project was in creating a European Alcohol Public Health Research Alliance that could influence the debate on alcohol policy at a European level. This report presents a summary of a relevant amount of work conducted during the last four years by a real multidisciplinary and multinational team. Nevertheless, the report acknowledges there is still a lot to be done. In the context of the financial and economic crisis facing the European Union, it is even more important to reduce the burden that alcohol poses to society in order to keep people healthy, and thus the EU productive and competitive. Good alcohol policy improves the sustainability and efficiency of social and health care systems, so more needs to be done to identify more clearly which factors at an EU level are limiting the implementation of efficient and innovative alcohol policies. At the outset, AMPHORA had ten scientific objectives and three technical objectives, the results of which are summarised in the order in this report.
