On the 25th November 2019, the Drugs Research Network Scotland (DRNS) held their second annual conference titled Drugs research: priorities for the future. Supported by the Society for the Study of Addiction, the one-day conference was designed to help the Scottish drugs research community to produce more effective and impactful research. The day included a series of presentations and workshops, as well as academic posters authored by researchers from across the UK. The event was fully subscribed, and we hosted around 140 delegates, including academic and peer researchers, Masters and PhD students, researchers from the NHS, third sector service providers, and people with lived/living experience of drug use. This report provides a summary of the event. All conference outputs, including videos and slides from presentations, graphics and photographs are available on the DRNS website at drns.ac.uk/conference2019/
