Symposium 2009

UCL staff and research students were invited to attend the 1st annual UCL public engagement symposium, on the afternoon of Thursday 11th June 2009. The symposium was a chance for members of the UCL community to present the ways in which they have shared their research and teaching with people outside the University, and to learn from each others' experiences.

UCL has been recognised as a Beacon for Public Engagement, and receives funding from HEFCE, Research Councils UK and the Wellcome Trust to support this work. UCL's conversations with public groups span all disciplines and take part at every level of the University, and speakers will include colleagues from across UCL.

The symposium took place in the Wilkins Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, from 2.45 until 6pm, on 11th June 2009. It was followed by a drinks reception from 6pm until 8pm in the Haldane Room.
