In early 2011, SCRI will come together with the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute (MLURI), to “form a new powerhouse for research into food, land use and climate change,” bringing together about 200 senior research scientists plus support staff into a single organisation capable of undertaking research across multiple disciplines. 

The new “Super Institute” will focus on the environment/plant/land continuum, combining scientific and research excellence with delivery of knowledge, products and services to international, national and local customers.  “Its research will feed directly into long-term societal concerns relating to sustainable economic development, food/energy/water securities, environmental change, biodiversity, waste reduction and community development and well-being,” says Professor Peter Gregory, Chief Executive of SCRI.
