The Sheffield Alcohol Research Group is pleased to host the annualEarly Career Alcohol Research Symposium on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th September 2022, which is sponsored by the Society for the Study of Addiction.

This two day symposium is aimed at early career researchers working in the field of alcohol research from both public health and social perspectives.  We define early career researchers as current PhD students, up to five years post-doctoral research or no more than seven years in alcohol research (excluding Bachelors and Masters degrees). Please contact the Organising Committee if you are unsure whether you meet this definition.

The programme will feature early career researchers presenting and discussing each other’s research, as well as a panel discussion with research leaders.

The programme will also include social activities to encourage networking, foster collaboration and build a community among the next generation of alcohol researchers in the UK and beyond.

The meeting will be held at the Leopold Hotel in Sheffield and will also be accessible online for those who are unable to attend in person.

Lunch will be provided on both days, but delegates will need to arrange their own evening meals. We will reserve a table at a nearby venue on the 14th for those who wish to have dinner with the Organising Committee and other delegates. Details will be made available nearer the time.

There is no charge for attending the conference. A limited number of bursaries is available for delegates who cannot attend otherwise.

We look forward to welcoming you to ECARS 2022!
