Our Team

The Midlothian Science Zone team can readily signpost and direct your enquiries to relevant contacts and expertise in the zone, for example if you are looking to locate in Midlothian for science related business, seeking collaboration with our partners or tenant companies or have an opportunity to share with our partners or digital audience.

Our team may be small in size, however our reach within the Midlothian science and research community is extensive with the support and expertise of our Steering Group partners, representing world renowned organisations such as the University of Edinburgh, the Roslin Institute, Moredun Research Institute and Scotland's Rural College (SRUC).

The team are hosted at the Roslin Innovation Centre, the business gateway to Easter Bush Campus.

Emma McCallum - Project Co-ordinator

Emma McCallum took up the exciting role as Project Co-ordinator with Midlothian Science Zone in October 2020 and will work with the project's Steering Group to deliver on the key objectives of their Business Plan: to stimulate economic growth within the region's science and research sector; promote the diversity, prestige, quality and capability of Midlothian Science Zone and to attract more companies, particularly those with a One Health focus and open to collaboration.

To help achieve these aims, Emma will develop channels to facilitate communication between businesses within the zone through a programme of business engagement, networking and familiarisation events. Observing current restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic, initially communication and events will be hosted virtually.

Collaboration is key, and increasing engagement with tenant companies will help to identify more opportunities with others in the region and also linkages for investment and funding opportunities to stimulate business growth.

Midlothian Science Zone (MSZ) is an attractive place to locate a business, nestled in a green belt area in the shadow of the Pentland Hills, and conveniently located on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Working with key partners and stakeholders, the excellence of science and research capabilities within the region's science parks and research institutes will be part of promoting what we have here in central Scotland, in the zone.

Emma works with team member Lesley Parsons, to share and promote good news stories and achievements on a local, national and international level. In addition, Emma will be engaging with local partners on local and national policy requests and offering outreach and links to educational and local authority skills agencies.

Contact Emma for further information on opportunities to collaborate in the zone or for an invitation to join our regular MSZ Business Forum meetings.
