The DRNS is holding an interactive seminar for people based in the north of Scotland who are involved in or have an interest in research into problem drug use. Our aim is to bring together key stakeholders from a range of disciplines and backgrounds to:

  • discuss research currently underway,
  • identify researchers’ development needs,
  • share ideas for projects based on evidence of need and colleagues’ interests, and
  • support the development of collaborative projects and funding bids.

This event will be of relevance to established academics, Masters students and PhD candidates, Early Career and Peer Researchers who are interested in developing the research community and activities across the north of Scotland. Places are free and include a sandwich lunch.
