Organisation profile

Orkney leads research for UHI in three areas, each of which submitted to the REF2014. These areas, Agronomy, Archaeology and Nordic Studies have a particular resonance in an island community with close Nordic ties, superlative archaeological sites and where agriculture has been a core industry for generations.Research activity is also developing in the field of art and textiles and this enthusiasm to explore new horizons characterises the enthusiasm of staff to be at the forefront of their discipline.
