The Scottish Government funds a portfolio of research on the environment, natural resources and agriculture, and are currently developing a strategy for the next cycle of research, beginning in 2022, which will outline the vision, priorities and mechanisms for funding that research.
A consultation has been launched to allow views on the priorities for future research to be shared, and asks for comment around the themes of:
- plant and animal health
- sustainable food system and supply
- human impacts on the environment
- natural resources
- rural futures
The consultation is open until 14 December 2020 and can be completed online.
