The symposium is a collaborative effort between the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA) the US National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the New Zealand Drug Foundation.

With cannabis use and policy evolving internationally, drug-impaired driving has become an increasingly relevant issue. This international symposium will put the spotlight on key developments relevant to road safety in recent years and highlight the implications of these for drug-impaired driving.

The objective of the symposium is to bring together key stakeholders who have advanced the field — whether it be through detection technology, innovation in prevention or experience in developing new drug policy — to share their experiences and lessons learned and to develop next steps to effectively address drug-impaired driving.
