The UHI has, for the last 3 years, played host to science and engineeering students from France.

While over here, they are engaged in various research projects in the Institute and as part of their itinerary the UHI organises overviews of the local industry and economy. Pictured with the group is Colin Macdonald, Site Shift Co-ordinator (far left).
