Successful implementation: learning from international approaches

Health research funders can stimulate implementation of research results, without taking over responsibility. They award grants for implementation projects, stimulate cooperation between research and practice, and disseminate results to practice and patients through understandable products.


The impact of drug policy on society

Every country in Europe has its own drug policy. The ERANID project ‘Illicit Drug Policies and Social Outcome’ (IDSPO) will study the societal impact of policy, not in order to compare countries, but to show policymakers the potential impact of the choices they make. IDPSO stands for ‘Illicit Drug Policies and Social Outcome’.


Research from perspective of addicts

Giuseppe Carrà

The ERANID-funded project D.U.R.E.S.S. focuses on the experience of people suffering from addiction during recovery and reintegration. Or, in the words of Giuseppe Carrà of Italy, ‘it’s about their personal subjective perspective’.


Luxembourg and the Netherlands tighten their research collaboration

On 27 June, the Dutch Ambassador to Luxembourg Peter Kok invited representatives of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMw) and the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR), as well as high-calibre researchers in Luxembourg to a joint information workshop. This meeting followed the signature, back in March, of a Statement of Intent between the national...


High sensitivity as a vulnerability factor in substance abuse

Individuals who are highly sensitive to environmental stimuli – highly sensitive people – appear to be more susceptible to substance use than others. Nevertheless, there has been very little scientific research on the relationship between high sensitivity and the use of addictive substances. The ERANID STANDUP project should change all that, however.


Dutch plan of action for new knowledge of Lyme disease

ZonMw launched an action plan for new knowledge of Lyme disease in research, practice and policy in March 2016. Representatives of patients, researchers, professional practitioners, policymakers and companies were involved in compiling the document.


Adding value to research

Eight projects will receive funding to study responsible research practices. Despite a plethora of theories and opinions, remarkably little scholarly investigation has focused on what makes a “good” scientific research system.
