Scotland House Discussion Series: Collaboration - the cornerstone of European leadership in science and innovation

Scotland House

In our next instalment of the Scotland House discussion series, Dame Anne Glover, renowned Scottish molecular biologist and President of the Royal Society of Edinburgh will offer her perspective on Scotland’s contribution to the European research and innovation ecosystem. The discussion will be guided by Dame Anne’s experience in working on the cross-roads of policy, science and industry, catalysing the connections between relevant stakeholders and attracting top-talent to STEM subjects in higher education 

Scotland has a history of outstanding scientific endeavour, invention and innovation. Scottish Enlightenment figures changed our world-view and economy, bringing science and invention together with industry and engineering. Our science and research base continues to be among the best in the world todaywith five universities in the world’s top 200 universities 

Working in partnership with others, Scotland continues to innovate, pioneer and lead in life sciences, medicine, renewable energy, digital and data driven solutions, engineering, biotechnology and many more sectors. Our institutions understand that international collaboration with research and innovation partners in Europe and globally is the key to generating ideas and solutions that benefit society.  

Scotland has benefitted immensely from collaboration, learning and exchange with our European partners and is committed to continuing this work with our EU friends and partners. Scotland is open, and now is the time for new thinking with our European partners. 

 

Dame Anne Glover is President of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, former Chief Scientific Advisor to the President of the European Commission and was the first Chief Scientific Advisor for Scotland. She is also a member of the Principal's Advisory team at the University of Strathclyde.  

The discussion will be preceded by a light lunch and followed with a short networking session.
