The Czech Republic becoming the host country for what was historically the second conference of the world association of universities providing addiction-specific education, the International Consortium of Universities on Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR), founded in Honolulu, USA, in March 2016. Its origin is closely related to a group of universities which have been developing and implementing the UTC (Universal Treatment Curriculum) and UPC (Universal Prevention Curriculum) international curricula. The second conference was intended to be the key moment because of its intended scope, viewed as a significant challenge for the group. Universities from around the globe were invited to participate in this meeting aimed at sharing and exchanging experience of university education for addiction professionals.
