Latest coronavirus update - 26/06/20

IIn line with COVID-19 instructions from the Scottish Government, most Hutton staff continue to work remotely but we are returning our necessary on-site operations to more normal levels in line with the government's Phase 2 of easing, which permits research premises and labs to return to operation (with adaptations) from Monday 29 June. Reception at Invergowrie and Aberdeen will reopen from that date, at 0830.

Essential deliveries, technical work, maintenance and specific, agreed scientific activities can take place on-site.

Our sites will continue to operate on a restricted access condition, and only staff who are doing work that can only be done on-site are permitted to get access. All other colleagues will continue to work from home unless they cannot do so remotely.

We continue to be available – the big challenges of our time, including climate change and food security, are still urgent. By email, social or phone, we’re happy to help.

If you are in doubt about whether you should come to our site(s) please call 0344 928 5428 first.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
