Our Academic Vision resonates with Scottish Government priorities, Research Council themes, and EU priority areas.
We can claim with justification, unique and valuable STEMM research activity in aquaculture, the environmental and conservation sciences, health and behavioural change and in applied technologies. Our approach is developed through rigorous empirical and multi-disciplinary frameworks given predictive power through computational, mathematics, quantitative modelling and informatics technologies. Our research aspires to be world leading, collaborative and excellent, internationally recognised for its quality and relevance. We support and pursue fundamental ‘blue skies' research with theoretical excellence at its heart. Working, where appropriate, with businesses and public service organisations both at home and overseas, our research has direct and positive outcomes for economy and society across a range of critical problems.
