WAVE (Workforce Addiction · Valorisation in Europe) is a European project, co-funded by DG JUST at the European Commission, running from June 2022 until after the Lisbon Addictions Conference in 2024. WAVE will 1) create a global Community of Practice for addictions workforce development, 2) carry out mapping research on best practice, variety and gaps in the European addiction workforce, 3) co-produce a thematic track ‘Empowering the Addiction Workforce’ in Lisbon Addictions 2024, and 4) run a video competition for audio-visual pieces relating to one any of the main areas/ thematic tracks of the conference (a selection of videos competing for the prizes will be shown at the conference in the WAVE Cinema).

In addition, the project will award up to 120 bursaries to support participants who would otherwise not be able to attend the Lisbon Addictions 2024 Conference.
