On 6 April 2006 Diageo Ireland, a subsidiary of Diageo plc, the world's largest producer and distributor of alcoholic beverages, announced the awarding of a grant of 1.5 million euros to the University College Dublin's (UCD)Geary Institute. The grant will fund a 3-year study of health risk behavior in relation to hazardous drinking among young adults (aged 18-25 years) in Ireland. In the context of growing industry involvement in alcohol research, we question the propriety of this funding initiative and ask the administration of UCD to reconsider their decision to accept it.
