Creating connections

10 February 2012

A UCL and Camden Shares networking event

Thursday 16th February 6.00 – 8.00pm

Old Refectory, UCL Wilkins Building, Gower Street, WC1E 6BT

Could you use some academic expertise in your work? Are you interested in working with staff and research students from University College London, one of the world’s top universities? If so, book a space at Creating Connections, an informal networking event at UCL on Thursday 16th February, 6.00 – 8.00pm.

The event will be a chance to create new collaborations between UCL’s researchers and community organisations. Perhaps you’re thinking about doing some research into the impact of your organisation? Or need help with a health promotion campaign? Or are wondering about how to get policy makers to listen to you? Or want to help local residents tell the history of their neighbourhood? If so, UCL might be able to help.

In fact, these are just a few of the areas where UCL and the community have worked together successfully – and we’re always looking for new ideas and new partners. The event will be a practical evening with people from UCL and across London’s not-for-profit sector. You’ll hear about other’s experiences of university-community projects, and have the chance to turn your own ideas into action. Camden’s resource sharing network, Camden Shares, will also be on hand to give advice about creating successful partnerships.

The event is jointly organised by UCL’s Public Engagement Unit, UCLU’s Volunteering Services Unit, and Camden Shares. To sign up, email John Braime at
