Town hall invitation: Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy
18 March 2013
At 4pm on Thursday 21 March there will be a Town Hall event for all UCL staff interested in learning more about the BEAMS School’s exciting new endeavour on science, technology, engineering and public policy.
Launching this autumn, the new Department and cross-faculty Institute at the heart of this initiative will develop a diverse array of internationally oriented educational, research, and policy engagement programmes. These programmes aim to build upon the superb foundations provided by UCL’s world-class excellence in science, technology and engineering, as well as the same in legal, social and policy studies. They also aim to continue UCL’s longstanding ethos of public engagement and service currently embodied by initiatives such as UCL Public Policy, UCL Enterprise and UCL Global Citizenship.
Accomplishing this ambitious agenda will require building strong collaborations with academic staff and programmes from across UCL, and the leaders of this endeavour – Brian Collins and Jason Blackstock – are keen to engage all interested UCL staff in their ongoing strategic visioning and planning process. (And with the impact agenda at the forefront of everyone’s mind for the REF this year, there are undoubtedly many ideas around for expanding UCL’s ability to maximise the global societal value of our academic excellence!)
The meeting will run from 4-5pm on Thursday 21 March at Bedford Way LG04 (with reception to follow from 5-5:45pm). For more details about the event – and about a series of roundtable discussions around campus Jason and Brian will be running over the next two months – please visit the UCL Engineering website.
