26 July, 2017 - AMR Network event - current research & future funding

Time: 14:00:00 - 17:00:00

UCL’s Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Network is organising an event to showcase AMR related research going on across UCL and hear from the Medical Research Council (MRC) about future RCUK funding opportunities. The event will provide an opportunity to hear about upcoming AMR related funding opportunities from RCUK and beyond and will showcase the exciting research going on in the field here at UCL. We will also have ample opportunity to network to forge new and exciting collaborations. Network activities have so far focused on PIs, however for this event we would like you to put forward your PDRAs and PhD students to present their research. They will be able to submit an abstract during registration for the event and the best abstracts will be chosen for research presentations. We hope to attract presenters who represent research across the four RCUK AMR research themes and beyond.

Location: Room 6.02, UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, 22 Gordon Street, London, WC1H 0QB

1 November, 2017 - Inequalities: Evidence from longitudinal studies

Time: 09:00:00 - 17:00:00

Inequalities continue to plague all areas of society, from education and income, to health and life expectancy. Successive governments and decades of policy initiatives have targeted the unequal life chances across communities, countries and generations. But why do these disparities persist? And who faces the greatest risks? The UK’s longitudinal studies are leading sources of evidence on life course and intergenerational inequality. CLOSER’s 2017 conference seeks to bring together researchers from across disciplines to showcase longitudinal research’s contribution to our understanding of inequalities. The conference is an opportunity to share ideas and innovations with longitudinal researchers from across disciplines and sectors, both from the UK and abroad. It will also showcase the latest resources for research, including CLOSER Discovery – a search engine that allows researchers to explore the content of eight leading UK longitudinal studies in unprecedented detail.
