Scottish Government Vision

This vision places the science that we invest in at the heart of Scottish society, and looks to those engaged in the research we fund to visibly and proactively contribute to the health, wealth and wellbeing of the nation, by applying their collective talents for the benefit of all of Scotland's people.

This strategy sets out the future direction for the science which the Rural Affairs, Food and Environment portfolio will require, and the ways of working which we will adopt by:

  • outlining a high level vision for the 2016-2021 period;
  • identifying the priority themes through which we will frame the application of our research efforts and resources;
  • setting out the ways in which we want to work in the future, including our approaches to knowledge exchange and innovation.
