UHI - a developing institution


UHI’s research reaches the highest levels of quality, with three of its disciplines producing world leading research, as measured in the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008, namely Archaeology, Environmental and Earth Sciences and Gaelic Culture and Language. The university already has a higher research profile than a number of longer established Scottish universities and we intend to grow our research capacity and strengths even further.

The effect of change all around us will be felt in many aspects of research funding, research councils, EU Framework programmes, charities, and also the vital issues of capital and infrastructure funding. These present a significant challenge to a developing institution and our Research Strategy document (see left) sets out our plan to meet these challenges.
