Biography and Research Interests

The VIDI grant, entitled ‘Beer’s not for you, mummy, that’s for daddies’, was awarded to Emmanuel Kuntsche of the Behavioural Science Institute (BSI) at Radboud University and of Addiction Switzerland. It is funded by an NWO research innovation programme and carried out under a cooperative arrangement between Radboud University and the Trimbos Institute. This longitudinal study focuses on the acquisition and development of children’s alcohol knowledge (4-8 years old) as the basis for alcohol expectancies and transition from expectancies to drinking motives to consumption in early adolescence (11-16 years old). As a postdoctoral researcher of the BSI, I will investigate the development of childhood knowledge and expectations about alcohol.
