"The Hutton Seminar series aims to engage society in discussion and identify future needs or solutions"

The James Hutton Institute presents seminars addressing the core issues and challenges facing the way in which land and natural resources are used. The Hutton Seminar series aims to engage society in discussion and identify future needs or solutions, aligned to our scientific challenges:

  • Scientific Challenge 1: Develop new crops and production methods that help deliver food security while better protecting the environment.
  • Scientific Challenge 2: Protect and enhance the resilience of ecosystems for multiple benefits.
  • Scientific Challenge 3: Deliver technical and social innovations that support sustainable and resilient communities.
