Adam Smith's Panmure House is a holding of Heriot-Watt University.
In 1821, Heriot-Watt was founded as the world's first Mechanics Institute. The University's roots in the practical innovation of the first industrial revolution make it a fitting steward for the home in which Smith finalised his celebrated observations on the benefits of the division of labour.
To assist in the University’s oversight of Panmure House, a formal advisory board exists to ensure that Panmure's programme of events remains relevant to the aims of the project.
The Chair of the Panmure House Advisory Board is Graham Watson LLB, CA, FRSA.
