In addition to verifying whether the Council recommendations had been implemented, the project also sought to map out the current drug-related prevention and harm reduction activities within the EU. In mid-2006, the Trimbos Institute delivered its conclusions and recommendations to the EC, which reported the findings back to an expert committee. The results were submitted to the member states in late 2006. Partly on the basis of this mapping exercise, new recommendations for further action were developed.
