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.

Important notice

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will be delivering the European Drugs Summer School (EDSS) this year through online and remote teaching . Live sessions with experts and practitioners will be held from early to late afternoon (Lisbon Time, GMT +1). The sessions will be recorded and available for viewing later. Small individual exercises will be given every day and an exam will be offered to those who wish to earn credits.

We will announce the programme at the end of April. Students already registered will be contacted by ISCTE for further information. Please check the EDSS website for an announcement on fee reductions and the option to defer registration to next year.
