Our Partners

The Environmental Research Institute of the University of the Highlands and Islands (ERI), NHS Highland, Scottish Water, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and the Centre of Expertise for Waters (CREW) form the OHBP steering group.

So far, the partnership has been built through approx. £40k per year of in-kind support from the steering group, owing to the strategic alignment between the OHBP and their own objectives and in recognition that cross-sector cooperation is required to resolve One Health issues.

The partners are committed to continued support of the OHBP but all recognise that additional resources, outside of the current in-kind contributions, will unlock its full potential to promote innovation and impact.
