Coronavirus update

Image of a Virus - COVID-19

Latest coronavirus update - 23/03/20

In line with the latest COVID-19 instructions from the UK Government, nearly all Hutton staff are now working remotely. Our sites have been placed on a restricted access condition, which means that only staff who are doing essential work can get access. All other colleagues will be working from home or staying at home even if they are unable to work remotely. 

Rest assured we're still 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.

Please note there will now be no on-site Reception cover. Arrangements are being put in place so that calls can be diverted to Reception teams remotely, and they will take details of callers, provide direct dials and send emails to let colleagues know about external phone calls.

As the situation develops, please check the UK Government and NHS websites for the latest advice and updates.

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.
