What is the International Barley Hub?

The International Barley Hub is a platform to promote excellence in barley science and promote collaboration across the scientific, industrial and commercial sectors. Its goal is to generate new discoveries and their effective translation into wider economic, social and commercial benefits. It will explore strategies for mitigating climate and environmental change to benefit a whole range of industries and wider society.

Who we collaborate with?

We work together with our international community in science, research and academia to support and collaborate across breeding, farming, malting, brewing, food, feed and health industries.

Where are we based?

The International Barley Hub, hosted at The James Hutton Institute near Dundee, Scotland is an international community with collaboration and interaction predominantly across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
