The James Hutton Institute often uses either video or web conferencing when holding meetings with those outside of the institute.

Videoconferencing facilities

Our Aberdeen and Dundee sites have dedicated video conferencing facilities.

If you want to have a video conference with us, we can provide a SIP or IP address to connect to once you've arranged a video conference with somebody here.

Note: we cannot connect to ISDN-based video conferencing systems.


Web conferencing

An example of a WebEx meeting

The James Hutton Institute makes use of the WebEx web conferencing system for many of its meetings with collaborators.

WebEx is a web conferencing system that lets you have a conference call with one or more Hutton staff. During a meeting you can hear and speak with those in your meeting either by phone, or by using your computer or mobile device's microphone, or headset.

You can choose to let others see you by sending video from your webcam, and you can see those that have chosen to do the same. You can also see the presenter's desktop or documents if they wish to share them with you, and you can share yours too if the host of the meeting allows you to.

If you have been invited to attend a WebEx meeting, you can read our guide on how to take part in a WebEx meeting.

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.
