3 October, 2014 - Neuroscience Careers Network: Grant Writing Workshop

Time: 13:00:00 - 16:00:00

The aim of the half-day session is to help investigators improve their applications for funding, whether project grants or fellowships. It will be led by two senior UCL researchers, Professor Matteo Carandini (UCL Institute of Opthalmology) and Professor Sophie Scott (UCL institute of Cognitive Neuroscience). To participate in this workshop, every participant must provide an abstract, lay summary and full scientific proposal (it may be a preliminary application) for either a grant application or a fellowship application at the point of registration. You will need to submit this at least 10 days before the workshop. Costings are NOT required. Attendance at the workshop is free, but registration is required. Registration details will follow shortly. Places are limited and priority will be given to those that submit their proposal in a timely manner.

6 October, 2014 - Research Councils UK Roadshow

Time: -

From September all seven Research Councils will be using Researchfish for the collection of information on the outcomes of Research Council funded research. Dates for roadshows on the new harmonised collection service are now available. Previously researchers funded by AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC and NERC returned information via a system called ROS (Research Outcomes System) whilst only researchers funded by STFC and MRC returned information via Researchfish. A roadshow on the new harmonised collection service has now been arranged near UCL, on Monday 6 October at the Hilton London Euston. The roadshow is free of charge and open to all researchers, research managers and research administrators. It is anticipated that there will be separate morning and afternoon sessions (depending on numbers) and will be an opportunity to find out about RCUK plans for research outcomes and ask any questions you may have.

9 October, 2014 - Liberating the NHS: the creation of NHS England

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

Organised by UCL Political Science

Since its creation in 1948, the NHS has been a nationalised service industry under the direct control of the Secretary of State for health. New Health Secretaries have tended to set about immediately reorganising priorities, objectives and structures, but very few have remained in post for more than two years. This is not provided the long-term stability that is necessary to plan for the very different model of care this is now needed for an ageing population with a high incidence of chronic disease. NHS England, which assumed responsibility for the entire commissioning budget from April 2013, was intended to liberate the NHS from direct political control. How far has that plan succeeded in practice?

9 October, 2014 - UCLP Centre for Neurorehabilitation Symposium - ‘What’s the Use of Technology in Neurorehabilitation'

Time: -

A symposium on the role of technology in neurorehabilitation. Speakers will explore a range of topics from the fundamentals of neurostimulation in the nervous system to the use of robotics to promote practice and learning. They will discuss how the power of virtual reality and the internet can move rehabilitation into patients’ homes and allow clinicians to collect clinically relevant information on a large scale. Finally, they will consider the importance of getting these technological advances out of the laboratory and into the market place where they can be of greatest benefit to the most people.

13 October, 2014 - Research on the ageing phenotypes: toward a translational perspective

Time: 18:15:00 - 19:15:00

Over the last few years research on the biology of aging has made unprecedented progresses and has grown into an essential branch of science. Technology is now available that allows candidate biological mechanisms of aging to be assessed in humans. At the same time, geriatricians and gerontologists are developing robust measures of susceptibility and resilience that can be collected in clinical populations. In most cases, these areas of research evolved as separate entities unlikely to collide. Future progress in understanding human aging will require biologists, population scientists, gerontologists and geriatricians to find a common language and start operating as multidisciplinary team.

30 October, 2014 - Urban Pamphleteer #3 launch: Design & Trust

Time: 18:30:00 - 21:00:00

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

Join UCL Urban Laboratory for the launch of Urban Pamphleteer #3: Design & Trust, as part of the programme for Cities Methodologies 2014. Urban Pamphleteer is a series of publications that confront key contemporary urban questions from diverse perspectives. Written in a direct and accessible tone, these pamphlets draw on the history of radical pamphleteering as a tool for instigating change. Design & Trust asks what the consequences are of prioritising defence and security as a first principle in design – an issue that has recently fired up the news agenda in public campaigns to remove ‘anti-homeless’ spikes and critiques of so-called ‘hostile architecture’ in public spaces. A number of the researchers and artists featured in this issue will be in conversation to summarise their contributions. Urban Pamphleteer is supported by the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities and the UCL Urban Laboratory.

3 December, 2014 - The Graffiti Sessions

Time: -

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

Hosted by UCL Urban Laboratory, the Graffiti Dialogues Network at Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London) and Southbank Centre, the Graffiti Sessions will gather a wide group of experts to debate issues surrounding graffiti. We aim to identify new horizons for future city strategies on graffiti and opportunities and challenges for evolving creative practice, towards places that are both safe and sociable. The event comprises a three-day series of talks, workshops and panel debates exploring the evolving roles of graffiti and street art in the urban environment. The ambition is to challenge deep-rooted preconceptions and speculation that have until now limited the progress of both policy and practice related to street art and graffiti. Bringing together key institutions and individuals, the project will establish an open and sustainable discussion forum for the exchange of a broad scope of viewpoints and positions on street art and graffiti.

5 December, 2014 - The Graffiti Sessions

Time: -

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

Hosted by UCL Urban Laboratory, the Graffiti Dialogues Network at Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London) and Southbank Centre, the Graffiti Sessions will gather a wide group of experts to debate issues surrounding graffiti. We aim to identify new horizons for future city strategies on graffiti and opportunities and challenges for evolving creative practice, towards places that are both safe and sociable. The event comprises a three-day series of talks, workshops and panel debates exploring the evolving roles of graffiti and street art in the urban environment. The ambition is to challenge deep-rooted preconceptions and speculation that have until now limited the progress of both policy and practice related to street art and graffiti. Bringing together key institutions and individuals, the project will establish an open and sustainable discussion forum for the exchange of a broad scope of viewpoints and positions on street art and graffiti.
