19 May, 2014 - Generating social trust in the 21st century

Time: -

European countries, the EU & the UN focus on measures of wellbeing rather than GDP as an indicator for the health of societies. While many wellbeing measures attempt to quantify happiness, little attention is paid to the mechanisms by which trust in social institutions is engendered. Yet, a high level of social trust is central to successful, healthy & equal societies. Building social trust presents enormous challenges today for European political leaders. How is social trust & citizen trust generated? What does the future for maintaining social trust look like in the 21st century? This two-day forum (organised by UCL Science, Medicine & Society Network & UCL European Institute) seeks to explore the effects of trust-building research on new efforts to address social distrust. Exploring the areas of welfare, healthcare and inequity, it asks if social trust is a better measure of social wellbeing than emerging indicators on individual and national happiness. © Wellcome Images

  • External Seminars: Guest speakers from other institutions around the world are invited to speak about recent breakthroughs they've made in hearing research. (Takes place every third Thursday at 1pm in the CAR seminar room)
  • Work in Progress (WIP) Seminars: These reports are a chance for members of the Ear Institute to catch up on any exciting new developments that other members are currently working on. (Takes place every third Thursday at 1pm in the CAR seminar room)
  • Grand Rounds: Clinical interest seminars which take place every Wednesday morning in the RNTNEH
  • Cochlear Nonlinear Processing Interest Group: A discussion group for people with research interests in the interpretation of physiological and psychophysical estimates of nonlinear processing at the peripheral level of the auditory system. (These take place roughly every 2 - 3 weeks) (hosted by Ifat and Torsten)
  • Audiology Seminars: Guest speakers from the Ear Institute and other institutions are invited to speak about the important topics affecting clinical audiology. (Takes place on the first Tuesday of every month during term time)
  • Auditory Central Nervous System (CNS) Journal Club: Each week a member of the Institute presents a short summary of their current research followed by a presentation on any topic related to the auditory brain, be it a journal article, review of the state of the literature, or an in-depth discussion of their own work. (Takes place every Tuesday at 10:30)
  • Cochlear Implant group: takes place bimonthly (every two months) for people interested in clinical research into Cochlear Implantation
