Centre for Mountain Studies

The Centre for Mountain Studies (CMS) was established at UHI Perth in August 2000, with the objective of creating a centre of excellence for work in mountain areas within the University of the Highlands and Islands.

With a focus on mountain environments and the people who depend on them, both in Scotland and internationally, the CMS has four main goals:

  • To undertake and communicate high-quality research;
  • To convene meetings to disseminate and discuss knowledge and to develop research agendas;
  • To contribute to informed policy-making processes;
  • To lead in the development and delivery of academic courses and training.
