Find out how you can easily access our research outputs.
We are committed to open access of our research wherever possible. You can access our research outputs, learn more about our research team, see our current and past research projects and much more at the SRUC Pure Portal. The portal aims to showcase and preserve our research output as well as make it more accessible to anyone with an interest.
SRUC is currently on a transformational journey as we move towards becoming a unique, market-led and mission diverse 21st Century rural university, driving the future needs of a dynamic, innovative and competitive rural sector in Scotland, and working with our collaborators and partners worldwide to solve the biggest global agrifood challenges.
Our researchers already carry out strategic and applied research on global and local food security issues, and actively support the translation of research results into practice. Our research ethos is strongly collaborative, and we have a long history of industrial, NGO and academic partnerships locally and internationally.
As well as having longstanding disciplinary strengths in several key areas, we actively promote interdisciplinary research, especially linking natural and social sciences.
We have a particular interest in research that helps inform policy, with Scottish and UK Government rural affairs and environment departments and the EU as key research clients.
