Latest coronavirus update - 22/09/20

In line with COVID-19 instructions from the Scottish Government, most office-based Hutton staff continue to work remotely. Our necessary on-site operations in labs, field and farms are operating as normal, reflecting the government's continuing Phase 3 of easing.

Reception is open at Invergowrie and Aberdeen from 0830 to 1700 daily.

Essential deliveries, technical work, maintenance and specific, agreed scientific activities can take place on-site. Any visitors must advise their intention to visit in advance, agree this with their Hutton contact who will register their visit, along with any appropriate mitigation measures.

Our sites continue to operate on a restricted access basis, and only staff doing work that can only be done on-site are permitted. 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.
