What is the future for Edinburgh & South East Scotland? That is the seminal question we will be asking as FutureScot returns to the capital for FutureScot’s third annual economic development conference focused on Edinburgh & South East Scotland - encompassing Edinburgh, East Lothian, Fife, Midlothian, Scottish Borders and West Lothian councils.
With Brexit fast approaching, there has never been a more pressing time for business, economic and policy leaders to gather together and discuss the challenges and opportunities surrounding an historic £1.3bn investment pledge, unlocked by the government-backed Edinburgh & South East Scotland City Region Deal, to build the knowledge economies of the future.
Join us at the Edinburgh City Chambers as we deploy some of the nation’s foremost innovators, thought leaders and entrepreneurs at this critical time, as they make the case – and outline the future – for a data-driven Edinburgh & South East Scotland. A full report on the conference will be published in FutureScot magazine distributed within the Times on 30 March, 2019.
