UCL has been hailed as a “shining example” for supporting student entrepreneurs by the Guardian in an article about whether universities are doing enough to help students start new businesses.
2013 UCL Consultants Award
In recognising successful UCL consulting projects, the UCL Consultants Awards seeks to honour UCL researchers who have collaborated with industry on a consultative level.
Previous winner (2012) Dr Vanessa Diaz was selected for her leading project that aims to produce a roadmap for the realisation of the ‘Digital VPH Patient. The Digital Patient is a method of integrating diverse computational models and individual data to produce a computational patient avatar. This would allow revolutionary health prediction and disease treatment when the ‘Digital Me’ of a citizen needs to avail itself of health services. The project is worth a total of 1.3m euros.
