Presentation of Key Findings & Overview of Mapping Work Packages

13:30 – 13:40

Work Package 3: Mapping European Tertiary Prevention Science Education and Training

The objective of work package 3 is to map the scope and focus of existing Prevention Science learning programmes, curricula, qualifications, paedagogies, learning outcomes and competencies currently being delivered across the tertiary education sector in Europe. As a minimum, all the partners in the project will be involved in providing knowledge and information which will support the project to develop a detailed market map of the available Prevention Science courses across Europe, organising these into a coherent set of qualifications (using the Bologna cycle descriptors), identifying those that are already using ECTS, identify opportunities to align standards, and identify potential gaps in provision/progression routes. Peer van der Kreeft, Lecturer Prevention, University College Ghent

13:40 – 13:50

Work Package 4: European Prevention Workforce Needs Analysis

The objective of work package 4 is to develop a robust understanding of the workforce skills needs of current employers of prevention workers across Europe (including scientists, researchers, practioners etc). This research will survey the needs of a range of Prevention Science policy specialists, research organisations and organisations delivering prevention support programmes, to identify any particular areas of course delivery that need to be developed in order to address the current needs of employers. Matej Košir, European Project Manager, Science for Prevention Academic Network (SPAN)

13:50 – 14:00

Work Package 5: Mapping relevant funded Research and Development (R&D) projects, Stakeholders, Events and Conferences

Mapping relevant funded Research and Development (R&D; often referred to as RTD: Research and Technological Development) projects, Stakeholders, Events and Conferences - the objective of work package 5 is to develop a detailed understanding of what current and previous funded RTD exist which have sought to address Prevention Science issues and to develop a database of relevant events, conferences, researchers, public policy specialists, funding agencies and officials that might potentially interested in developing links with the SPAN initiative. Prof. Rosaria Galanti, Adjunct Professor, Karolinska Institute

14:00 – 14:15

Quality Framework

Dr. Roman Gabrhelik, Head of the Primary Prevention Centre and the Treatment Centre at the Department of Addiction, Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic

14:15 – 14:30

European Credit Transfer and accumulations System (ECTS) Recognition and Award

The objective of this work package is to implement the recommendations contained in the Quality Plan (WP 6), by encouraging institutions to develop their internal quality assurance procedures, create credit allocations for their programmes, or components, to validate them according to their national and/or institutional rules and to monitor the credit allocations to establish whether the estimated workload is realistic.

Prof. Janet Mifsud, Associate Professor in the Department of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, University of Malta
