Scotland’s Innovation Centres have teamed up with The Herald for a special, one-day, online conference on 3 November 2020 to explore innovation, inclusive growth, cultural change around climate action, and ultimately, how collaboration could achieve national net zero targets

With over 1600 registered delegates, next week’s ‘Scotland’s Countdown to COP26’ event will examine how Scottish businesses and organisations can collaborate and respond in the run-up to COP26, the UN climate change conference that will take place in Glasgow in 2021. Opportunities exist to learn lessons from COVID-19 and take action to create a prosperous, safer, and greener world.

This free, one-day conference is packed with plenary speakers, themed parallel sessions, presentations, panel discussions, Q&As, networking, and virtual exhibitions.
Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre is hosting the sustainable food from land and sea theme, and will present a programme that brings together some highly knowledgeable and influential voices from the blue and green economies.  The programme includes a presentations from Scottish Association for Marine Science's (SAMS') Dr Adam Hughes, and closes with Professor Michele Stanley's ' A matter of life and seaweed'.
