EU referendum: the view of a UCL clinician-scientist

John Martin, Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at UCL, argues that scientific advance relies on creativity, cooperation, and financing. To leave the EU would diminish all three, dimming the light of British science in the world and threatening the UK’s future economy. This piece is part of the UCL European Institute’s commissioning partnership with openDemocracy. For more on this topic, join the UCL European Institute for its high-level panel discussion EU Membership and UK Science on 12 May.

Something rotten in the state of Czechia?

The Czech Republic has been in the news recently because of its politicians' somewhat quick Celtic campaign to rebrand the country to the world as ‘Czechia’. But among political scientists and businesspeople the country's name has long suffered worst damage than this.

Speakers

This event will be followed by:
Opening of our Exhibition and Awards Ceremony for the ‘Europe in London’ Photography Competition at Wilkins North Cloisters, from 7pm

London’s multicultural environment is the forefront of European diversity. The theme ‘Europe in London’ explores how Londoners from different places across the world perceive Europe.

UCL’s students had the opportunity to express what Europe means to them and what makes them feel as a part of this community.

We all have a picture in mind when we say “This is Europe”. It could be a place, a person, an atmosphere, anything. Find out what our photographers saw…

The photos will be exhibited in the Print Room Café from Monday, 4th March.
