SHAAP/SARN ‘Alcohol Occasionals’ 2018-2019 – Call for Proposals

Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP) and the Scottish Alcohol Research Network (SARN) are pleased to organise the lunchtime ‘Alcohol Occasional’ seminars. These showcase innovative research on alcohol use and provide the chance for researchers, practitioners and policy makers and members of the public to hear and discuss alcohol related topics, over lunch in the historic Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh at 9 Queen Street, Edinburgh.

We are now seeking proposals to deliver seminar presentations during 2018/2019, with a focus specifically on Alcohol and Recovery. We are interested to hear from researchers from any discipline who wish to share their findings with an audience made up of fellow researchers, practitioners, policy makers and the general public. We would particularly welcome presentations from new and early career researchers.

The dates for the 2018/2019 seminars are (all Thursdays): 25th October and 6th December 2018; 17th January, 7th March, 25th April and 23rd May 2019.

If you are interested in presenting your research, please email us at  with a short proposal (max. 300 words) and an indication of your availability. Closing date for submissions: Friday 31st August 2018.
