Workshop Two: Accelerating Tech That Enables Climate Action

18 May 2021, 1300 – 1430

Can you help accelerate tech that enables climate action?

SCDI, BT Scotland, ScotlandIS and The Royal Society of Edinburgh are working together to explore opportunities to develop, harness and export tech to address Net Zero priorities in Scotland and internationally. In this workshop, we’re considering the existing and future connections between the innovation ecosystem, funding and finance, deployment in Scotland, exports, skills, regulation and ethics.

The objective of this second workshop will be to understand how to unlock the opportunities for the tech sector and for Net Zero. You’ll hear from speakers, then join a breakout to identify key recommendations that SCDI can take forward.

Confirmed speakers are:

  • Karen Meechan, Interim CEO, ScotlandIS
  • Dr Andy Kerr, Director, UK and Ireland, EIT Climate-KIC
  • Christian Arno, CEO, Pawprint
