We provide around £50 million of funding each year towards a portfolio of strategic environment, natural resources and agriculture research, and are one of the largest funders of agri-environmental research in UK.
The primary purpose of the funding is to provide science and evidence to support policymakers and delivery partners. In doing so, it also maintains long-term research programmes and science facilities which directly support Scotland’s academic research base and allows research institutes to leverage in additional funding from other UK and international funders.
