International Research

The James Hutton Institute collaborates and works in numerous global locations, exporting and importing knowledge, impact, innovation, skills, learning and experience. We are confident our research will benefit Scotland, the UK and the world by underpinning a wealthier, smarter, greener world with tangible benefits for more sustainable land use, jobs, high-value skills and knowledge, adding value to growing economic sectors such as Food and Drink and sustaining our important primary production industries that grow, feed, fibre, feedstock and support the bioeconomy. Our collaborations also seek to protect and grow our natural capital and project ourselves internationally as a place where excellent science delivers real-world solutions.
