Research students from three universities – Heriot-Watt, Robert Gordon, and UHI – share news of the progress of their work, hosted by Dr Mike Bell of Heriot-Watt University’s International Centre for Island Technology in the Stromness campus with its views out across the harbour to Graemsay, Hoy and Scapa Flow.

Mike Bell is a marine biologist with particular interests in sustainable inshore fisheries and their interactions with marine renewable energy.

We’ll have the full list of participants soon, with a richly varied mix of topics and interests. Among them will be Cáit O’Neill McCullagh, a final year PhD student at the Intercultural Research Centre of Heriot-Watt University and the Institute for Northern Studies, UHI. She’s looking at how the traditional maritime background of Orcadians and Shetland can help with learning for sustainability today, with her research project New Connections.

Annie Thuesen’s research project at UHI’s Institute of Northern Studies looks at the sustainability of cultural heritage tourism in Orkney, It has a particular focus on opening access to underutilised Norse and Viking sites, as a way of taking the pressure off the more well-known heritage sites.
