Project INEP


The development of the INEP online training system was made possible by the collaboration of the Charles University team with various partner universities and educational institutions, international agencies (such as EMCDDA, UNODC, and WHO), and key partners in the project, including the International Society of Substance Use Professionals (ISSUP) and the International Consortium of Universities on Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR). The common goal of this long-term joint project pursued on a not-for-profit basis is to ensure the maximum availability of high-quality education and training for prevention professionals.
