At the University of Stirling, we aim to be recognised across the world as a university that addresses the needs of society through innovative, interdisciplinary research. We are proud that our work is already making a positive impact on people’s health, education and wellbeing.
As part of every research project we undertake, we ensure the highest possible care and ethical standards, promoting a culture of best practice. Demonstrating our integrity is important and is achieved through the core values of honesty, rigour, open communication, care and respect. A small proportion of the University’s research involves the use of animals – mainly finfish – and we only use animals when no suitable alternative is available.
