Study Visit Scholarships

We have secured funding to enable four  researchers to spend a week working with an established alcohol research team to enable them to develop paper or research ideas, funding applications or to gain specific skills or insight. The visit must be aligned to one of AcoRN’S four policy themes; Availability, Price, Marketing or Politics.

The AcoRN Steering Group will assess applications and award the funding as they see fit to best further the objectives of the network.  AcoRN is particularly keen to support several applicants from ROI where there are internationally innovative policy developments and fewer established research groups.  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. Applications are made completing the form and returning to acornukirl@gmail.com. Forms must be submitted by the (first round deadline of) deadline of 31/10/2021.

Please read the Guidance Notes carefully before applying:
