National Centre for the Uplands
The National Centre for the Uplands has been established to lead training, research and dialogue in hill farming and land management.
We will address the challenges of delivering multiple outputs from the uplands including food and breeding livestock, cultural landscapes, water, woodlands, carbon storage, access, moorland management and biodiversity.
There are three aspects to our work
• Acting as the ‘National Centre’ for education, training and knowledge transfer for the Uplands
• Combining farm practice and research evidence to inspire excellence in upland farming and land management
• Fostering synergy between organisations concerned with uplands farming and land management
Located at Newton Rigg College we have our own hill farm, Low Beckside at Mungrisdale.
How will we work?
We work through a partnership structure whereby we develop and undertake initiatives and projects with partners. Current projects can be found here.
