Land research boosted by £1,000 prize

STUDENT research into what extent community-owned land is used for agriculture has been boosted by a £1,000 prize.

Roz Corbett – a ‘human geography’ student at research organisation, The James Hutton Institute, and the University of Aberdeen – is the latest recipient of the National Student Award, from the Scottish Land Commission.

Roz is a PhD student. And, says the Scottish Land Commission, here: “The grant will enable Roz to carry out a knowledge exchange workshop with community landowners, new entrant farmers, researchers, and key stakeholder organisations to explore the relationship between community land ownership and new entrant land access for agriculture in Scotland.”
