Our two week online Winter School (14th to 25th of February 2022) prepares professionals and students to meet the complex policy challenges that face Europe and the World in the field of drugs. Teaching staff include scientific experts from the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), researchers, practitioners and policymakers.

This edition will have a special focus on Cannabis: practice, policies and debates in the EU and beyond.

The Winter School will be delivered through online and remote instruction. Following the success of the first Winter School, live sessions with experts and practitioners will be held from early afternoon until late afternoon (Lisbon Time, GMT +1 to GMT +3/4). Individual small exercises will be given and assessed every day, and an exam will be offered to those who wish to earn the credits. Virtual tours to field work will be included.

Iscte Scholarships

Iscte offers five scholarships covering 50% of the standard fees, exclusively for scholars who register in the first phase (deadline 5th December 2021)

All candidates are eligible. Scholarships are attributed on the basis of merit (40%), and the GDP of the candidate's country of residence (60 %).

The University will inform the candidates selected, by email, together with their notification of acceptance.

Bursaries for Western Balkan region and European Neighbourhood Policy

Professionals, academics and experts from the Western Balkan region and European Neighbourhood Policy countries will have an opportunity to participate in the 2022 European Drugs Winter School (EDWS), thanks to scholarships offered through two EMCDDA projects: the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA7) and EU4Monitoring Drugs (EU4MD). The scholarships will cover the course fees. All candidates from those regions who apply in the first phase (deadline 5th of December) will be eligible. 

Credits and Requirements

The Winter School will give 6 ECTS for their courses.

Students are required to do the assigned readings ahead of time; and − for those who volunteer and/or are selected − to make a short presentation about their research/expertise.

A Multiple Choice Questionnaire (MCQ) will be required at the end of the Winter School, including questions on class content, class discussions and readings. For those who want to be formally evaluated, Iscte will issue a Specialised Studies Diploma with the final grade − if the exam is successfully concluded.

Students may also require attendance certificates.
