It is named after the final home of 18th century Scottish economist and philosopher Adam Smith. Panmure House is in Canongate, Edinburgh and has been restored and reimagined by Heriot-Watt University as a centre for social and economic debate and research.

On 22 February, Adam Smith's Panmure House launched the inaugural Panmure House Prize, a $75,000 award for the best research proposal into long-term investing and its impact on innovation. Prize winners will utilize the award to conduct research to shine a light on new ways to encourage longer-term investment into radical innovation, leading to solutions to some of the world’s most burning questions, including social inequality, climate change, and sustainability. The Panmure House Prize is administrated in partnership with FCLTGlobal – the deadline for applications is 15 April 2021, with the first prize awarded in Summer 2021.FCLTGlobal
