Soundbites and Director's Seminars: Post-Covid Recovery in the UK
19 August 2020
Announcing the 2020/21 Autumn Soundbites and Director's Seminars, a series of public events hosted by the UCL Institute for Global Prosperity
The Soundbites and Director's Seminars series are public events hosted by the UCL Institute for Global Prosperity, and open to all. They are held regularly throughout the academic year and each series features both Seminars and Soundbites, mixed intermittently. The theme for this series is Post-Covid Recovery in the UK.
Soundbites are a platform for professionals and entrepreneurs who are leading in their field. Speakers are innovators and inspiring actors working in new and traditional sectors, outside of academia. The Soundbite gives the audience an insight into how their organisation contributes to sustainable and inclusive prosperity.
The Director's Seminars are an opportunity for audiences to get an in-depth theoretical perspective on sustainable and inclusive prosperity. These Seminars are given by academics who are pushing for new ways of thinking and new ways of researching society's grand challenges.
For the 2020/21 Autumn term, we will host these events virtually on Zoom. Please sign up via Eventbrite to receive the webinar code.
