The James Hutton Institute is an interdisciplinary scientific research institute engaged in research to deliver solutions to the global challenges facing land and natural resource use - both now and in the future.
We aim to make key contributions to issues including food and energy security, biodiversity, and climate change.
This will be achieved by delivering the highest quality integrated and innovative science that contributes knowledge, products and services to meet the multiple demands on land and natural resources.
Our research is conducted and delivered in partnership with industry, agencies and Governments to enhance sustainable environmental, social and economic development.
The institute was formed on 1 April 2011 by uniting the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute and SCRI (Scottish Crop Research Institute) combining existing Scottish expertise in agricultural research, soils and land use.
