Research collaboration with University of Glasgow

We have formed a research collaboration with the University of Glasgow’s MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit to investigate how spatial data may help us look at the health impacts of both heritage environments and changes to them. The Glasgow team specialises in looking at environment and health and has carried out past work on natural environments and health, and health inequalities. You can find more information on their work on the unit's pages.
