UHI Inverness is based at Inverness Campus, a growing hub for research, enterprise and innovation.
UHI Inverness researchers are based at the Research Hub, a collaborative open office which is equipped with high-specification computers for bioinformatics, modelling, statistical analysis and geographic information systems, and provides meeting rooms with excellent facilities for both online and hybrid meetings.
Our laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for molecular genetic analyses in support of biodiversity research. In 2022/23 we will double existing capacity to carry out molecular biodiversity monitoring. This will include increased use of eDNA and metabarcoding to identify and measure the abundance of a species in an ecosystem and the ecological impact of environmental changes.
Field ecology resources
We have a wide range of equipment for freshwater and terrestrial fieldwork including boats, gillnets, electrofishing gear, camera traps, aerial and aquatic drones, and a mobile field laboratory.
Forestry learning resources
Through our close links with the Scottish School of Forestry we have access to forestry learning spaces and a 10 hectare forest.
