The Academic Forum for the Study of Gambling comprises a coordinated body to assert the importance of rigorous, independent research to prevent, reduce, and address gambling harms in the UK. Greo will provide administrative support.
The AFSG awarded a number of grants to support the advancement of gambling research capacity in Great Britain including professional development grants to students and research grants.
In October, the Academic Forum will open two calls for funding intended to support gambling studies capacity. The calls include: Funds to support travel and conferences for masters and PhD students, and funds to support research projects for doctoral students. Information about the funding calls and the Forum will be available on the Forum website.
