Alcohol Occasional Seminars: Alcohol, Europe and the World

SHAAP/SARN Alcohol Occasional Seminars, 2015–16: Alcohol, Europe and the World

Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP) and the Scottish Alcohol Research Network (SARN) are pleased to announce our programme for the lunchtime ‘Alcohol Occasional’ seminars, 2015-16. These showcase innovative research on alcohol use and provide the chance for researchers, practitioners and policy makers and members of the public to hear and discuss alcohol related topics.

The theme for this seminar series, from October 2015, is ‘Alcohol, Europe and the World’. This series of presentations will provide insights and stimulate discussion about alcohol in different cultural contexts, drawing on a range of disciplines and opening up debate about implications for policy and practice. Following the seminars, SHAAP will produce briefing papers, which will aim to capture the main themes and to communicate these to a wider audience. You can access reports from previous seminars here.

All of the Alcohol Occasional seminars will be run in conjunction with the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and will take place from 12.30 – 14.00 at their historic premises at 9 Queen Street Edinburgh, EH2 1JQ. Lunch will be provided free of charge.
