Reading Time: 1 minute
Svenska Spel’s Games Research Council is going to issue grants totalling SEK5m (around 470,28o Euro) to support new research projects on gambling addiction.
Svenska Spel has highlighted three projects that will receive grants, with the first one set to focus upon the treatment of gambling addiction among elite players in Swedish ice hockey. The second one will look at developing a new internet-based treatment for gambling addiction and the third will investigate the connection between trauma and gambling problems in women.
“It is with great pleasure that we have selected projects that have the potential to contribute to increased knowledge about gambling addiction,” Sara Lindholm, Chairman of the Research Council said.
“At Svenska Spel we strive to offer safe games and gaming environments. To be able to develop our gaming responsibility, it is a prerequisite to support the research. Through the Research Council, we want to increase the knowledge and understanding of gambling problems,” Scarlett Roa, Sustainability Manager of Svenska Spel said.
