1 June, 2016 - Up Close and Policy: academics in conversation with policymakers

Time: 10:00:00 - 11:30:00

This Up Close and Policy event will bring together senior academic Prof Graham Hart (UCL Population Health Sciences) and external policymaker Mike Kelly, formerly Director of the Centre for Public Health at the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). They'll discuss their experience of academic–policy interaction, offer their views on the complexities of policy engagement and answer your questions on opportunities and pitfalls. Have you ever wondered how research can inform policy decisions? Are you unsure of the best routes for engagement with public policy? Do you want to know more about when and how to communicate research to policymakers? Up Close and Policy sessions offer the chance to hear from UCL academics and policymakers on their experience of academic–policy engagement, the insights they have gained, and what they consider the key lessons for successful engagement.

2 June, 2016 - Swamp Dialogues

Time: 17:30:00 - 19:00:00

Swamp Dialogues (Romania, 2015, 53 min) by Ildikó Zonga Plájás (with English subtitles) The Danube Delta in Romania – the ‘Last European Sanctuary’ – is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. While major efforts are made to protect biodiversity, the plight of local communities is largely overlooked. Social scientists claim that the traumatic nature of the swamp bears heavily on the villagers’ lives. But is Nature really to blame? Swamp Dialogues is based on extensive field-research in the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve. Through a ‘argument montage’ built entirely on cinematic language the film entails an anthropological reflection on knowledge production in social sciences. The screening will be introduced by Eszter Tarsoly. Following the screening, there will a discussion lead by Sahil Nijhawan and Rafael Chiaravalloti.

3 June, 2016 - Neural Plasticity Workshop: Insights from Deafness and Language

Time: -

During infancy, there are discrete periods during which the brain has an enhanced capacity for reorganisation in response to environmental inputs: the ‘sensitive’ periods of brain plasticity. Traditionally, it has been thought that reorganisation after a sensitive period is not possible. However, recent research has shown that plasticity is a property of both the developing and adult brain, and that functional recovery after the close of sensitive periods is possible. Integrating animal and human models, and insights from the study of deafness and language, in this workshop we will discuss mechanisms of brain plasticity throughout the lifespan, its impact on perception and cognition, and the current and future applications for functional adaptation. This is a free event but you need to register in advance via the link below

7 June, 2016 - Big data and intelligent policing

Time: 09:30:00 - 18:00:00

Organised by UCL Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering

In May 2012, UCL began working with the Metropolitan Police Service on a major EPSRC-funded research project on Crime, Policing and Citizenship (CPC). The motivation was to develop new methods and applications in space-time analytics and emergent network complexity. Throughout the funding period, CPC has uncovered patterning in crime, policing and citizen perceptions, at a range of spatial and temporal scales. The research team has been avowedly inter-disciplinary, drawing on geoinformatics, crime science, geography and computer science, and the over-arching objective has been to engineer effective solutions to real world crime problems. This workshop will close the project by presenting the outcomes of the research. It will also provide a forum to discuss the role of Big Data in aspects of life that lie beyond intelligent policing. The workshop will be used to disseminate the findings across policing, government, industry and academia.

9 June, 2016 - EU Referendum: environmental & climate change consequences for the built environment

Time: 18:00:00 - 20:00:00

Organised by Built Environment - The Bartlett

The EU Referendum is a once in a generation event, the outcome of which will ultimately be driven by the vote of UK citizens. It has brought an opportunity to reflect and act on Britain’s standing within the EU and our relationship with it. It can remind us where Britain was before we joined the EU, what we have accomplished as full members with other EU nations to arrive where we are now, and what made Britain want to renegotiate our relationship with the EU. The key question that the referendum raises is: How has the EU membership affected the UK and what might change in the event of a vote to Remain or Leave? One important aspect that deserves examination is the consequences of the different referendum options for Britain's environmental & climate change legislation and practices in the built environment. This has not been given much discussion and limited information exists for what this means...

10 June, 2016 - BBSRC funding workshop

Time: 13:00:00 - 15:00:00

The UCL SLMS Research Coordination Office is pleased to announce a workshop on Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) funding. This will be an opportunity to hear from the BBSRC funding team and a BBSRC-funded UCL researcher. In addition to covering the BBSRC remit, funding opportunities, and peer review process, we have asked our speakers to discuss research areas that may sit at the BBSRC/MRC interface and how to tailor such research projects to align with the BBSRC remit; we therefore particularly encourage attendance from researchers in Divisions/Institutes that are classically disease-oriented (who may have more experience with MRC) but who have basic biology research that could be relevant for the BBSRC remit. The workshop is open to all research staff.

6 July, 2016 - Comparing data across and within longitudinal studies: challenges, opportunities and resources

Time: 15:45:00 - 17:15:00

At the Research Methods Festival 2016, CLOSER will have an exhibition stand and live demonstrations of CLOSER Discovery, an online resource that enables researchers to search the contents of eight leading UK longitudinal studies. This session focuses upon the value of comparing data from different longitudinal studies, or different waves of the same study, and the challenges involved. Presentations will describe CLOSER-funded projects that have compared data from a number of different UK cohort studies via retrospective harmonisation of key measures, and two new CLOSER resources aimed at helping researchers who are interested in cross-study or cross-wave comparisons. Professor Rebecca Hardy (UCL MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing), Dr Bilal Nasim (UCL Institute of Education) and Ms Gemma Seabrook (UCL Institute of Education)

6 July, 2016 - Grantsmanship mentoring for early career researchers

Time: 09:30:00 - 12:30:00

At this mentoring workshop, early career researchers will get the chance to present and receive feedback on a two-page outline grant or fellowship proposal. On the day, early career researchers will also deliver a 3 min presentation. Senior academic mentors will then ask questions about the proposal and provide constructive feedback. The mentoring sessions will run for 3 hours and early career researchers will be able to sit in throughout in order that they can learn from their peers and vice versa. Early career researchers will submit their proposal two weeks in advance, which will then be passed on to senior academic mentors. There are only 12 places on the mentoring workshop, your place will be reserved once you have sent your two page research proposal to r.aldridge@ucl.ac.uk.
