A new online presence for a new 'super institute'

The James Hutton Institute was launched on 1 April 2011 and we have a brand new website to share its science. On the website you can find information about our research themes, the history of the Institute and its predecessors, our commercial activities and watch an interview with Chief Executive Professor Iain Gordon.

Farmers and industry representatives will find details of our annual field events Cereals in Practice, Fruit for the Future and Potatoes in Practice. All our other forthcoming events are also featured.

Students and teachers can discover useful resources and members of the general public are sure to find something of interest in our image galleries, outreach activities or online games.

The James Hutton Institute brings together the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute and SCRI (Scottish Crop Research Institute). Over the coming months we will be busy updating the website as the work of the new institute progresses.

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.
