New Year Greetings

ERAB would like to take this opportunity to wish you a prosperous and succesful 2016.

ERAB, The European Foundation for Alcohol Research

2015 Grants Awarded

 

ERAB is pleased to announce the funding of eight new grants starting this year and would like to congratulate the successful researchers.

 

ERAB received a record 67 applications last year following a late call in May. They were again of outstandingly high quality and deciding which to fund was, as always, really difficult. A panel of external reviewers completed review forms for the applications. This helped the Advisory Board to identify the best applications with regard to the clarity of the hypothesis, the merit of the science, the calibre of the team and the appropriateness of the budget. ERAB would like to thank the external reviewers for this valuable assistance.

 

Having again particularly encouraged applications for research on lifestyle and drinking patterns we were dissapointed not to receive more projects in these important areas. However, several of the applications which proposed beer specific projects scored very highly and the Advisory Board was delighted to propose the funding of several of these which are also very much part of ERAB's mandate.
