Welcome to the Drugs Research Network Scotland

Established in August 2017, the Drugs Research Network Scotland (DRNS) is a collaboration of academics, policy-makers, service providers, people with lived / living experience of problem drug use and affected family members.  The DRNS is funded by the Scottish Government through a contract managed by the Scottish Funding Council.

We invite anyone interested in our activities and outputs to sign up to our monthly eNewsletter.

People willing to contribute to the development and delivery of drugs research in Scotland can apply for DRNS membership.  We are keen to support the development capacity in the sector and especially welcome members including peer researchers, Masters and PhD students, and Early Career Researchers – as well as more established academics.
