About us

ResULTS is co-ordinated by a consortium of interdisciplinary social scientists at the University of Edinburgh, agricultural scientists, ecologists and economists from Scotland’s Rural College  in collaboration with veterinary practitioners from RAFT Solutions Ltd.

The project was developed as a result of our long term engagement with stakeholders in UK and European upland food systems, through existing advisory, professional and research services. The team has extensive experience through participation in previous research projects; many of which involved direct contacts with a variety of stakeholders through interviews, workshops and other activities/forms of collaboration.
