About EUCAM


The European Centre for Monitoring Alcohol Marketing (EUCAM) is supported by AV.OG.TIL, IOGT-
NTO
, Alcohol & Society Denmark, Eurocare Italia, STAP (Dutch institute for alcohol policy), Lithuanian Tobacco and Alcohol Control Coalition (NTAKK) and Addiction Switzerland
EUCAM is set up to collect, exchange and to promote knowledge and experience about alcohol marketing throughout Europe. EUCAM is fully independent from the alcohol industry and in no way connected or supported by the industry.

The knowledge partly results from ELSA, the European project that brought together 27 NGOs and governmental officials in order to evaluate the existing regulations regarding alcohol marketing. The objectives of EUCAM are:

1. Promoting the Monitoring of Alcohol Marketing
EUCAM aims to create opportunities and to promote monitoring of alcohol marketing in Europe in order to gather reliable information about the volume and content of alcohol marketing and about the functioning of the existing procedures related to the regulation of
alcohol marketing. 


2. Promoting and disseminating impact research 
EUCAM aims to be an easy accessible source of current information and knowledge on the impact of alcohol marketing in European countries. 

EUCAM publishes summaries of recent scientific studies on its website together with overviews of reports written by NGOs, governmental organisations and the alcohol industry. In addition, EUCAM updates its overview on alcohol marketing regulations in Europe.
