Edinburgh’s Old Royal Infirmary, a Category A listed building at the heart of the city centre, is to be the setting for the University’s new Futures Institute. 

The much-loved historic surgical building is being carefully renovated, extended and upgraded to form a major interdisciplinary institute, the largest of its kind in the UK. The Edinburgh Futures Institute (EFI) is changing how education tackles the big challenges of the future by bringing together disciplines from the arts, the humanities and the sciences with external partners from government and different sectors of industry, from technology to finance and consulting.

With a full suite of Postgraduate programmes launching in 2022 and an ambitious vision for research, industry and community engagement, EFI brings new approaches to learning, teaching and collaboration in the University and beyond.
