The 10th Conference of the European Society for Prevention Research (EUSPR) was held in Ghent, Belgium, during 16–18 September 2019. EUSPR was established to promote ‘the development of prevention science, and its application to practice so as to promote human health and well-being through high quality research, evidence based interventions, policies and practices’.1 The cornerstones of its work are a cross-disciplinary network of scientists, policymakers, and practitioners; the development of methodologies; the promotion of higher education and career development in prevention; and the implementation of research. 

The conference theme for 2019 was ‘Looking over the wall – promoting multidisciplinary work in prevention’. Speakers represented the international community working in the area of prevention. Posters and parallel session presentations covered a wide range of topics, including programme evaluations, methodological approaches, and broader debates on the role and value of prevention. Preventing substance use was just one of the behaviours addressed in the conference. A book of abstracts from the conference is available online.2
