EU funding opportunity

ERAB would like to draw your attention to a current EU call for tender concerning action to prevent and reduce harm from alcohol which offers funding of EUR 100 000 each for two contracts.   It is available from the Executive Agency for Health and Consumers which implements, among other things, the EU Health Programme. The purpose of the call for tender (tender n° EAHC/2012/Health/06) is to contribute to the protection of children and young people from harmful alcohol consumption by collecting good practice in the enforcement of legal age limits for selling or serving alcoholic beverages OR to contribute to raising awareness of lower-risk consumption patterns by examining the state of play in the use of alcoholic beverage labels to inform consumers about health aspects.

 

The deadline to submit tenders is the 1st June 2012.
