Alcohol Research UK invites applications for its research innovation grants. These support projects that address emerging issues in alcohol research, employ novel theoretical or methodological approaches, or pilot new work in treatment or service delivery. Projects must be in line with the research priority: treatment and recovery today. Proposals should address one of the following priority areas:

  • Mental health issues and dual diagnosis;
  • Pathways through, and barriers to, treatment and recovery;
  • Health or social inequalities and access to or experiences of treatment and recovery support;
  • Experiences of minority groups or hard-to-reach communities;
  • Novel approaches to treatment, peer support and recovery;
  • Impact of economic pressures or sector restructuring on service provision.

At least one applicant must be an early-career researcher, with no more than three years employment at an academic institution since completion of their PhD or with six months or less until submission of their PhD completion. Public involvement such as of service users, experts-by-experience, practitioners and families affected by harmful drinking is strongly encouraged. Proposals which have no clear plans for public involvement are not eligible.

Grants are worth up to £75,000 over up to two years.
