Structure and deliverables

The workload of the AMPHORA project has been structured in 9 fields of work. Each field is leaded by an expert, resulting in 9 interdependent work packages (WP).

WP1 - Creation of a European Alcohol Policy Research Alliance

Led by Antoni Gual - Hospital Clínic i Provincial de Barcelona

Involving all work package leaders and beneficiaries, the management team will oversee and coordinate the whole project.


WP2 - Integrated policy making

Led by Jürgen Rehm - Technische Universitaet Dresden

Evaluation of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of policy interventions will be performed in a common framework so that the outcome will enable comparisons across countries and time. Also, this second work package will estimate joint effects of multiple interventions.


WP3 - Analysis of the interaction of socio- cultural, economic and demographic determinants of the effectiveness of alcohol polic

Led by Allaman Allamani - Agenzia Regionale di Sanità

Social and cultural determinants that can affect alcohol consumption and alcohol-related harm will be identifyed and their change over time will be described. The final goal is the selection of those policies and programmes with the highest probability of success.

WP4 - Study the effect of marketing on alcohol consumption

Led by Avalon de Bruijn -Stichting Alcoholpreventie

This work package focuses on quantification of exposure to alcohol advertisement in young people. The resulting evidence will be used to examine individual and overall impact on their habits over three years.


WP5 - Study the impact of price and availability

Led by Esa Österberg - Terveyden ja Hyvinvoinnin Latios

The analysis of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of alcohol taxes, pricing, availability and access will enable estimation of their synergic impact to reduce harm done by alcohol.


WP6 - Compare the service provision for early identification and the management of alcohol use disorders

Led by Colin Drummond - Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London

Four elements have been designed for the analysis of early identification of alcohol use disorders and the public health impact of these interventions.


WP7 - Analysing the drinking environments and alcohol-related harm and reducing the harm from surrogate and illegally produced alcohol

Led by Karen Hughes - Liverpool John Moores University

The first element in this work package pursues the identification of key factors in drinking environments associated with alcohol-related harm. The second complementary element will collect untaxed alcoholic beverages to examine their alcohol content and other potentially health-threatening contaminants.


WP8 - Analysis of infrastructures for alcohol policy

Led by Sturla Nordlund - Norwegian Institute for Alcohol and Drug Research Maurice Mittelmark - University of Bergen Claudia König - University of Bergen

The four elements in this work package devote to the determination of the impact of public perceptions of alcohol-related harm. Also, the comprehensiveness and integration in alcohol policy and analysis of infrastructures will be scaled.


WP9 - Translating science into policy

Led by Peter Anderson - Anderson Consultant in Public Health

The dissemination strategy includes two Expert and Counterpart Meetings (2010 and 2011) and a European Alcohol Policy Conference (2012), as well as relevant conferences, workshops and publications in peer-reviewed journals.
