The RCRT will engage in academic research in partnership with the University of the Highlands and Islands. This will involve drawing together a group of researchers, some full-time and others part-time, to work in the general area of Reformed Theology, covering Biblical Studies as well as Systematic and Historical theology. The RCRT will also continue the tradition of academic conferences, which have taken place every two years since Rutherford House was formed. These conferences have drawn scholars from all over the world. The last one was in 2017 and papers were given by scholars from the UK, France, the Netherlands, the USA, Australia and Hong Kong. In addition, the RCRT will seek to build relationships with institutions in different parts of the world to work together on conferences and writing projects and also to encourage scholars to come to Scotland for sabbaticals and study leave.
