Our friends at Equate Scotland would like to invite you to a rare talk by the former chief scientist of NASA Dr Ellen Stofan on the 5th of March at 12.30pm at Craiglockhart Campus, Edinburgh..
She is in Edinburgh for one day and the US consulate has asked Equate Scotland to host a public lecture and q&a with her. Given the nature of the event and her coming through the consulate, Equate Scotland has pulled this together very quickly and would appreciate if you could circulate to your teams, networks and social media.
