Dr Richard Cooke, Department of Psychology at Aston University, Birmingham, spoke at SHAAP's 2015/16 Alcohol Occasional Seminar series about his work on the CALIBRATE project - a European survey of University student alcohol use. He outlined the background to CALIBRATE and presented findings from his own research. Social motivations for drinking were most common and students displayed a clear preference for educational rather than restrictive alcohol control strategies. Cooke concluded his talk by clarifying that his results provide findings from a sample of students at a particular point in time. He would like to extend this study to other universities and to other countries - a summary of his presentation's key points can be found here.
