Implicit Online Drug Screening (iODS)

iods logo

Together with the Agency for Innovation and Entrepreneurship of the Flemish Government, we are developing of an (online) assessment tool to detect (illegal) substance use (e.g., doping, heroin, XTC).

The iODS will consist of a short (online) computer task. Based on the reaction-time pattern of the respondents, it will be possible to estimate the probability that a respondent uses certain substances. This screening tool can be used in addition to medical tests and has the following advantages:

  • Time-saving
  • Cost-saving
  • Non-invasive
  • Widely applicable, with no time or geographical restrictions
  • Real-time scoring of the test results
  • Detection of substance use for which no medical tests are unavailable

The iODS research project also includes a market survey to learn about the requirements this assessment tool must meet for it to be useful for different types of organizations. This survey is available in four languages ​​(German, English, French, and Dutch) and consists of 30 questions (maximum) that can be answered in less than 15 minutes. Participation is completely anonymous (also your IP address is not registered).

Anyone interested is kindly invited to complete this survey via the following link: Start survey
