AcoRN: Study Visit Scholarships
The UK-Ireland Alcohol Research Network (AcoRN) have secured funding to enable four or more researchers to spend a week working with an established alcohol research team between the UK and Ireland. The visit must be aligned to one of AcoRN’s four policy themes; availability, price, marketing or politics. The visitor and host must be based in different jurisdictions, i.e., one in the UK and one in Ireland. Selection will be based on a competitive process whereby researchers and their proposed hosts make the case for how the visit will progress the aims of the network, the researcher’s development and commit to reporting on their visit in writing. There are currently three offers of study visits available:
- Institute for Social Marketing and Health, University of Stirling/University of Edinburgh – Alcohol Availability / Licensing
- Institute for Social Marketing and Health, University of Stirling – Alcohol Marketing
- Glyndwr University, Wrexham, Wales – Minimum Unit Pricing
