Workshop Directors

To help you and your colleagues feel as safe and comfortable as possible, we've put together this page containing essential health and safety guidelines, as well as some important practical information. 

Our organising team at the University of Edinburgh have rounded up their recommendations here of where to stay, eat and drink around the city.
