Home research Research Themes

Our research themes

In support of spreading research throughout the whole university and ensuring that all academic staff are connected by a common culture of research scholarship, the university is pursuing a growing focus on supporting and developing the horizontal linkages across partners and disciplines. University faculty strategies for learning and teaching are increasingly focussed on creating research-teaching linkages and fostering a culture of scholarship and research. This requires a close and critical connection between the university’s curriculum strategy, staff development strategy, and the research strategy, and this will be a major focus for UHI.

The pages in this section are intended to give a flavour of the type of activity currently being undertaken across the university, catagorized by these broad themes.

Further Information

The UHI Research Database has details on all our researchers, research outputs, activities and research publications. Use the link below to search for expertise, look for particular researchers or filter detail by research centre.

The information is drawn from our insitution-wide Research Database, updated on a daily basis by the researchers themselves so is a completely current record of our research capability and useful to a wide range of visitors looking for information on particular researchers, subject researchers, publications, conferences and activity. Over time this resource will also give information on facilities and equipment available across the university campuses, we are working to add as much of this information as possible throughout 2014.
