[Webinar] Minimising gambling-related harm: Contributing to a better understanding of problem gambling in Europe

Monday 17 October, 11.00-12.00 CEST

Understanding problem gambling is an essential step towards designing policies that minimise gambling-related harm. However, how European countries measure problem gambling is significantly different, including the national survey methods and screening tools used. With safer gambling demands increasing across Europe, a more common and best-practice approach towards understanding problem gambling, and how it is measured, could surely be beneficial and contribute to more effective policies to minimise gambling-related harm.

The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) and VIXIO Gambling Compliance invite you to join us on 17 October for a webinar to explore the topic further and discuss what is needed to achieve a better understanding of problem gambling in Europe. This webinar is organised as part of the European Safer Gambling Week 2022.
