Scotland & England

Scotland was a busy country for the Road to 2021 team! Our third day started in Cairnyryan on the coast of Scotland but we spent most of the day in Glasgow, before heading south across the border to end in Harrogate, England. It was our most productive day so far in terms of interviews, which meant it was our shortest number of miles in the cars.

 

The day’s agenda featured eight interviews – EOS Advisory, Talking Medicines, The Brain Tumour Charity, ClinSpec Dx, Glasgow Science Centre, Saltire Foundation, Entrepreneurial Scotland Foundation, and our sponsor, Arranta Bio. To get through this, we were lucky to be able to meet everyone in one location. We are very grateful to The Science Centre in Glasgow for hosting us.
