About Us

Our Rural Policy Centre is a knowledge hub for rural Scotland.

Spanning SRUC, we engage with our consultants, educators and researchers to harness the latest rural knowledge.

We operate as a focus for research in rural policy, informing policy debates through conducting research projects, issuing regular briefings and organising high profile events.

Our activities cover the full range of rural issues from CAP Reform and animal welfare to climate change, food and drink and community development.
