The Foundation collaborates with a range of universities and institutes to conduct leading alcohol research. FARE has invested more than $20 million to furthering alcohol and inhalant misuse research in Australia. We continue to support investigator led research and commissioned research in areas that assist with furthering our policy priorities.

The research funding provided by FARE has assisted in strengthening the evidence-base and has built the alcohol and research capability in Australia. Australian researchers are among the world’s best and are often called upon to provide advice to governments internationally.

Over the years, the Foundation has provided funding for research in a range of areas including;

  • Alcohol related harms
  • Young people’s alcohol consumption
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People’s alcohol consumption
  • Prevention and public education
  • Workforce development
  • Effective policies and interventions to address alcohol-related harms
  • Treatment and rehabilitation
  • Inhalant misuse

Centre for Alcohol Policy Research

The Centre for Alcohol Policy Research is a world-class alcohol policy research institute led by Professor Robin Room. The Centre examines alcohol-related harms and the effectiveness of alcohol-related policies and is a joint undertaking of FARE, the Victorian Department of Health, Turning Point and the University of Melbourne. The Centre not only contributes to policy discussions in Australia but also contributes to international studies of significance for the World Health Organisation.
