Event Description

AN INVITATION TO THE 2020/21 ANNUAL STAKEHOLDER MEETING

OUR PAST YOUR FUTURE: 200 YEARS OF HERIOT-WATT UNIVERSITY

Join us to celebrate our past, learn about our current achievements and challenges, and talk about the future.

Mr Grant Innes, Chair of Court, and Professor Richard A. Williams, Principal and Vice-Chancellor, invite you to an online event, where you will hear about the life and work of our University during these unprecedented times.

You will see our strategy in action, learn about our world-class research, be informed on our financial performance, and meet some of our students, alumni, and Heriot-Watt governors.

The event is open to all our staff, students and alumni, our partners, stakeholders, and local communities, as we celebrate not only the achievements of the past year but also the 200th anniversary of Heriot-Watt’s founding in Scotland.

Members of the audience are welcome to get involved and ask questions at a panel discussion, focusing on our performance and the future of Heriot-Watt University across our five international campuses.

This event will be interpreted into BSL.
