AI for People and Planet


Our partners

Find out more about the organisations partnering with UCL to enable our AI vision, and get in touch if you would like to contribute too.

AI partnerships
UCL is particularly well placed to take a leading role on the AI agenda; it is ranked  as a top university in the UK for research strength (most recent Research Excellence Framework) and is established as a comprehensive global university in a technologically advanced global city.

We, at UCL, also greatly value our many partnerships which allow us to push the boundaries and maximise the impact of new advances, and even more so in a pioneering and cross-disciplinary field such as AI.

We engage with partners in a variety of ways, ranging from funding ad-hoc research programmes to researcher/clinician collaboration. See below for a few examples of partnerships and contact us if you would like to discuss opportunities to partner. Contact details are included below for each type of partnerships, and you can also check our people's page for key contacts for each key area.
