Library / Press / Past Events / Eyes on Ages Network Conference (30.05.13) Amsterdam  

On May 30th STAP organises a network conference around the Eyes on Ages study together with the European Network for Alcohol Law Enforcement (ENALE). Eyes on Ages is a EC tender focussed on the age limits for selling, consuming and possessing alcohol in Europe.

An overview of the policies in all EU Member States (+ Norway and Switzerland) is created along with good practice strategies to enforce these age limits. In the conference the main results of Eyes on Ages will be presented by the researchers.

Eyes on Ages also pays attention to the available data and methods for compliance research (mystery shopping) in Europe.

Attached to the conference an evening program is organised where participants get the opportunity to get a view behind the scenes of the Dutch enforcement strategies. In small groups we will visit the city centre with Dutch law enforcement inspectors.

Target Group:
National and local policy makers, police, law enforcement
officers, politicians, researchers and health professionals.
