ICRG Research on Pre-commitment as a Prevention Measure to Reduce Gambling-related Harms
Closing Date: 15/05/2023
Funding to support research into the effectiveness of ‘pre-commitment’, a prevention strategy that allows gamblers to set limits on money and time spent gambling.
The International Center for Responsible Gaming (ICRG), formerly the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG), is a US-based 501(c)(3) charitable organisation that was founded in 1996. Its mission is to help individuals and families affected by gambling disorder by supporting peer-reviewed, scientific research into gambling disorder; encouraging the application of new research findings to improve prevention, diagnostic, intervention and treatment strategies; and advancing public education about gambling disorder and responsible gaming.
The ICRG has issued a Request for Applications (RFA) inviting investigators to apply for a two-year large grant to study the effectiveness of ‘pre-commitment’, a prevention strategy that allows gamblers to set limits on money and time spent gambling. As this is an under-developed area of research, the ICRG is looking to fund research that assesses the effectiveness of voluntary and/or mandatory pre-commitment programmes (through either online or land-based gambling venues) under real life conditions. Applicants are encouraged to design research programmes that not only determine the effectiveness of such programs but also offer insights for improving existing pre-commitment strategies.
