STAND 780 - RESEARCH HUB
The Scottish Environment, Food and Agriculture Research Institutes (SEFARI) is a collective of the James Hutton Institute; the Rowett Institute; the Moredun Institute; Scotland’s Rural College; Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland; Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. This is a unique long term and globally distinctive inter-disciplinary research collaboration, which delivers the Scottish Government Strategic Research Programme (SRP) on food, agriculture, environment and rural affairs. Food research is of seminal importance within the SRP and includes innovation and enhanced practices within crop and livestock production, novel foods, food reformulations and food-behaviours.
Through its long term established collaboration, SEFARI is able to place this research within key health, economic and environmental priorities. Our researcher-led and transdisciplinary programme-level knowledge exchange (SEFARI Gateway) works with the Food and Drink and Agriculture sectors, food policy and the public to ensure our research continually informs and is informed by strategic need.
