FuturiZe is a European project, co-funded by DG JUST at the European Commission, which ran from October 2018 to March 2020, and co-produced a strand of the 3rd European Conference on addictive behaviours and dependencies (LxAddictions19, 23-25 October 2019), on ‘the futures of addiction’.
The project aimed to provide a space for EU-wide, multi-stakeholder and inter-sectoral networking and structured interactive sessions, open to all conference delegates, focusing on key future scenario themes and elements in the field of drugs and behavioural addictions; the objectives of the sessions were to highlight emerging trends and solutions, and to boost knowledge exchange and collaboration among the primary stakeholder sectors, to enhance and support future-oriented policy thinking in the addictions areas. The project also set up a number of futur- looking networks and working groups, with the aim of sustaining and extending the processes started with FuturiZe.
