Innovation is at the heart of UCL’s ethos: as part of UCL2034 we have committed to build on our current activities to enhance creation of societal and economic value from our research and innovation. Since coming to UCL last year I have been greatly impressed by the many ideas our students and staff have and their enthusiasm in developing the application of those ideas outside the university to make a difference for the good.
