About SARN

The aim of SARN is to promote a strong collaborative research forum for clinicians, academics and researchers with an interest in responding to alcohol-related harm in Scotland, enabling us to co-ordinate and foster meaningful collaborations locally, nationally and internationally. 

About Us

The Scottish Alcohol Research Network (SARN) was launched following a Scottish Alcohol Research Summit in December 2012.

Specific aims include:

  • Promote alcohol-related research and development activities across and between sectors
  • Engage fully with local and national research communities
  • Plan networking activities for multi-disciplinary engagement and dissemination of work
  • Work collaboratively with researchers, clinicians, academics, Non-Government Organisations and funders to exchange ideas, generate new thinking and establish constructive partnerships
  • Draw together and make accessible existing evidence, work and thinking
  • Inform and learn from the UK and International research agendas
