KSA-commissioned Gambling Harm Research Programme to Begin This Year

The Dutch Gambling Authority, Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), has announced that its research programme into gambling harm and problem gambling will commence later this year.
Commissioned by the KSA and taking place between 2022 and 2025, the “prevention of gambling addiction” survey will aim to contribute to prevention and treatment of gambling addiction, “gambling related damage” and problem gambling.

Specifically, the research sets out to develop new knowledge around these areas, subsequently “stimulating its use”, with a “mix of short-term projects” planned for quick results and development of “valuable knowledge in the long term”.

Government health research financing organisation ZonMw was first commissioned in August 2020 to develop the research programme, ahead of the passing into law of the KOA Act on 1 October 2021, launching a re-regulated online betting market in the Netherlands.
