Moredun recognises the importance of collaboration in order to encourage innovative science and therefore strives to enhance current partnerships with other research organisations both in the UK and worldwide as well as continually looking to identify new opportunities for international collaboration.
Strategic alliances are important in all walks of life and in the world of research this is crucial to development. Bringing together the strengths of two institutions offers more options for solving the problems facing us on a global stage.
Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) have provided the structure and framework for stimulating jointly funded collaborative research projects which will advance knowledge on a number of important infectious diseases of livestock.
In the last three years Moredun has forged alliances with three world renowned animal health research organisations: the University of Glasgow , AgResearch  in New Zealand and the Institute of Aquaculture at the University of Stirling .
Moredun will continue to seek other strategic alliances in the future but in all cases the decision to cement relationships in this way will not be taken lightly to ensure that only the highest quality scientific research is pursued.
