Edinburgh Innovations and Covid-19 pandemic

In line with University of Edinburgh guidance, we are making changes to our events, as the Covid-19 situation continues to develop. Some of our events will be postponed and others delivered online. Our priority is the health and wellbeing of participants and speakers. Please check the status of our events and resources here or contact us for more information.
