–          Develop innovative approaches aimed at preventing relapse and models of good practice for reintegration and rehabilitation of (long-term) drug users, including  – inter alia – those released from prison;

–          Enhance the economic analysis of the drugs problem, including the development of methodologies to estimate social costs, the impact of economic crises on drug use and drug policies.

–          Exchange of best practice on innovative awareness-raising and prevention  methodologies targeted at young people and their parents/family/carers, by making  use of – inter alia – social media tools and applications- targeting the risks  associated with drug use, including those associated with the use of new  psychoactive substances.

Support measures aimed at preventing drug use, including by addressing  reduction of drug-related harm and treatment methods taking into account  the latest state of scientific knowledge (priority code: PREVENTION)

–          Identify and develop innovative approaches in harm reduction to reduce drugrelated deaths, in particular targeting poly-drug use and non-opioid drug users;

–          Develop approaches the systematic collection of data on emergency rooms  admission for drugs, with a particular focus on identifying trends in use and  adverse consequences relating to stimulant and poly drug use;

–          Develop innovative methodologies to identify and monitor new trends and  patterns in the consumption and adverse consequences of – in particular – new  psychoactive substances, and the development of targeted approaches in  prevention, harm reduction and treatment.

Projects aimed at the involvement of civil society in the implementation of  the European Union’s Drug Strategy and Action Plans on Drugs (priority  code: CIVIL SOCIETY)

–          Exchange of best-practices on cooperation between authorities and civil society at  local and/ or regional level, by public services providing prevention, education,  harm reduction and law enforcement, working together with voluntary organisations  and service providers from civil society.


The funding under this call is provided based on the co-financing principle: the grant  cannot constitute more than 80% of overall eligible project costs. The organisations  implementing the action should ensure that the outstanding balance is covered from  sources other than the EU budget. Contributions “in-kind” are neither an eligible cost nor are they accepted as income  of the project. They cannot be included in the project budget. There is no maximum limit, but a minimum limit: the grant applied for cannot be less than EUR 75.000.


Eligibility of the Applicant

 The Applicant organisation must be a non-profit-making public or private  organisation or institution (non-governmental organisation, regional or local authority at the relevant level, university department or research centre). Public authorities at national/central level are not eligible under this call. They can be associated to an application, but their costs will not be co-financed. Bodies and organisations which are profit-oriented shall have access to grants under the Programme only as partners if justified by the nature of the project but they cannot submit applications. International organisations and bodies set up by the European Union falling  under Article 208 of the Financial Regulations (EU bodies and institutions) are  not eligible under this DPIP call.


The Applicant must be legally established in an eligible country.

–          Eligible EU Member States: all Member States of the EU and Republic of Croatia

–          Other eligible countries: eligible EFTA States (Norway, Lichtenstein and  Iceland)


For successful Applicants the Commission intends to organise a 1-day “kick-off” meeting  in Brussels dedicated to networking, project management, administrative aspects and  reporting obligations. The cost for participating in the seminar can be considered as  eligible costs if the costs were included in the proposed project budget. Hence, the budget  of the proposal should include travel costs to and from Brussels and 1 overnight stay (if  necessary) for up to 2 representatives of the coordinating organisation (including at least  the project coordinator but ideally also the financial coordinator if not the same person).

The deadline for submitting proposals via the PRIAMOS system is 11 July 2013, 12:00 (noon) Central European Time
