About ERAB

ERAB, The European Foundation for Alcohol Research

ERAB: The European Foundation for Alcohol Research is an independent European alcohol research foundation, established in Brussels in 2003.

ERAB was established to fund biomedical and psychosocial research into beer and other alcoholic drinks. Applications are invited from researchers in established European research institutions or universities.

This initiative is supported by The Brewers of Europe, the voice of the brewing industry in Europe, whose members are the national brewing trade associations, representing more than 90% of European beer production.

Independence is guaranteed by a board of directors made up of a majority of independent members. The Foundation has an Advisory Board with a proven international scientific reputation.

As well as full research grants ERAB also offers Travel, Exchange and Other Awards for young researchers working in the field of alcohol research.
