From ground-breaking research into new treatments for Covid-19 to cutting edge research on dementia, from studies on the impact of alcohol advertising on young people to the effects of vaping, all three organisation have a strong track record in research and development.

The Partnership provides an effective vehicle to build on this impressive research work, particularly in the fields of dementia and ageing and public health. It also pools existing scientific, clinical and educational expertise to unlock future research funding to improve the health and wellbeing of people across Forth Valley.

Initial priorities include joint research collaborations to develop a Clinical Research Facility for NHS Forth Valley and a new Research Strategy for the University of Stirling.
