Project Intermediate Reports Available

Intermediate research reports are now available on the project web site. The reports present the preliminary outcomes of the research activity carried out within the project.

In detail, RiSSC’s reports illustrate the introductory results of an evidence-based pilot study on the Italian NPS market, aiming at contributing to fill the gap existing in the criminological knowledge of the NPS phenomenon and at understanding how the demand is likely to influence and impact on the supply chain of the psychoactive substances. ELTE’s report is focalised on the netnography as a mean to explore the interconnection between novel psychoactive substances, online developments, and drug trends. UK’s report presents the rapid in-field identification of psychtropic-narcotic active ingredients in NPS products using hand-held raman spectroscopy and US’s report presents first findings on legal and forensic analysis on NPS.
