Maximising the Impact of Scottish Drugs Research

This is not an SDF event but may be of interest to members and stakeholders.

Become a more effective and impactful drugs researcher by attending the first DRNS conference, supported by the Society for the Study of Addiction.

This one-day conference has been designed to support the development of the next generation of Scottish drugs researchers including: Masters and PhD students, Early Career Researchers, and Peer Researchers.

The programme includes presentations and workshops on:

  • Preparing strong grant applications.
  • Translating findings into practice.
  • Getting your work published in high-impact journals.
  • Best practice in research ethics and governance.
  • Co-production and public engagement.
  • Maximising opportunities for knowledge exchange.
  • Developing policy briefs for policy makers.

Poster sessions will allow delegates to present updates on work in progress and the results of recently completed research, with a prize for the best poster presentation.

There is a nominal fee of £20 per delegate place to encourage attendance and offset some of the event costs.
