Published: 04 February 2015

Beginning in February 2015 the lecture series will see the EICC use its network of academic and business contacts to extend popular debate on topics usually reserved for fee paying conference delegates.

Announcing the InnovationNation lecture series EICC Chief Executive, Marshall Dallas said:

“We present world-leading events on our stages that attract delegates from around the globe and we are delighted to now widen this mission to engage with the local community. We work everyday with an ambassador network in universities and businesses throughout Scotland and helping to showcase their work to a public audience is a new and exciting venture.”

Each early evening lecture event will feature two 20-minute presentations from leaders in their subject area and will include time for questions and public debate.
