Microsoft will be holding our Scottish 2010 Higher Education Briefing on 9th June 2010 at our Edinburgh offices . The agenda for the event runs from 10:00 to 4:45 with breaks to catch up with colleagues from other universities.

As well as getting the latest news on Microsoft’s product roadmap, there will be the opportunity to hear from one of our Scottish universities and to hear how they are responding to the economic pressures that all universities are feeling. Of course, this current academic year is full of launches of new Microsoft products, and we’ll be able to use the day to bring all of this into context – explaining the value and relative importance of some of the key new product launches.
