About the Academic Forum for the Study of Gambling

Presentation in Hall

The Academic Forum for the Study of Gambling (AFSG) is a group of academic researchers in the UK dedicated to advancing the research needed to effectively prevent, reduce, and address gambling harm. The purpose of the AFSG is to act as a coordinated body to assert the importance of rigorous, independent research to prevent, reduce, and address gambling harm in the UK. To accomplish its aims, the AFSG engages in a number of activities including, but not limited to: responding to or initiating calls for evidence; providing seed grants for promising research; supporting independent gambling conferences; public engagement; and providing opportunities for students.

Funding for the AFSG is derived from regulatory settlements for socially responsible purposes that are approved by the Gambling Commission. Monies represent a restricted payment to Greo who manages the funds on behalf of the AFSG. For further information, contact matthew@greo.ca.

The Academic Forum for the Study of Gambling is an independent group of UK academics that receives administrative support from Greo.
