Two-week summer school in Lisbon on the drugs problem in Europe and beyond involving Scientific Experts from the EMCDDA and guest lecturers from European Universities.


This two-week summer school prepares professionals and students to meet the complex policy challenges that face Europe in the field of drugs. Involving scientific experts from the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), but also university professors and policy-makers, it provides a multi-disciplinary and inclusive approach to the study of the drug problem in Europe and beyond. As this summer school will give 6 ECTS credits for its courses, students can easily transfer credits to other European universities using the ECTS system. Credits will be attributed formally to post graduate students (Master and PHD), but it is possible to allow undergraduate to use these credits in their home universities.

Target Audience

University students (undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate), researchers, professionals and administrators interested in or working in the drugs field, including participants from the EMCDDA's network of focal points in 30 countries, or from programmes being developed by the EMCDDA with third countries (e.g. Western Balkans, North Africa, Eastern Europe).

Credits and Requirements

This European Summer School will give ECTS credits for its courses. Students can easily transfer credits to other European universities using the ECTS system. Credits will be attributed formally to postgraduate students (Masters and Ph.D.), but it is possible to allow undergraduates to use these credits in their home universities. As one credit represents around 25 to 30 working hours, 6 credits will be attributed to those participating in the summer school, provided that they are evaluated. In order to comply with the working hours requested, students are required to do ahead of time the assigned readings; and – for those who volunteer and/or are selected - to make a short presentation about their research / expertise.

A Multiple Choice Questionnaire (MCQ) will be distributed at the end of the summer school, including questions on class content, class discussions and readings (70% of final score). Students may also require attendance certificates. At the end of the course all participants will receive an attendance certificate, with class contents and number of contact hours, issued by IPPS-IUL. For those who want to be formally evaluated, ISCTE-IUL will issue a Specialized Studies Diploma with the final grade - if they successfully concluded .
