Scottish Trade Mission

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Scottish Lifesciences Association Mission to Indiana became a successful virtual program with many introductions and meetings coordinated in April and May. We offer our thanks to Emily Butler for her help in making this year’s program happen! You can read Emily’s summary report here.

We will be continuing our matchmaking throughout the year. Please find a current listing of the companies we’re working with below. If you would be interested in a virtual introduction, please let us know (email: info@ihif.org)
