European Society for Prevention Research

Mission Statement
The European Society for Prevention Research (EUSPR) will advance the science base of environmental, universal, selective and indicated prevention aimed at improving human health and well-being and addressing health inequalities.

Cornerstones of this advancement are: cross-disciplinary networks of scientists, policy makers and practitioners, methodology development, promotion of higher education and career development in prevention and implementation research.

Membership
Membership of the Society is open to any qualified worker in a discipline relevant to prevention, including all European and international researchers, professionals, practitioners, policy makers and students who share the Society’s aims. Although we are primarily a European Society we encourage membership from all countries, particularly those professionals who wish to develop collaborative links with European researchers.

Why the EUSPR was established
In the European countries there is a growing interest for evidence-based prevention to tackle determinants of disease and ill-health, which is not paralleled by investment in human resources and education.

Consequently, this sector of research is not on the top agenda of most universities and institutions. Prevention scientists work in a rather isolated and mono-disciplinary world, while good quality research in this field requires cooperation and methodological development beyond the borders of traditional academic disciplines such as medicine, psychology, epidemiology, biostatistics, social scientists, anthropology.

There are no scientific societies in Europe that include these very specific themes. The EUSPR was born to fill this gap.
