Valentina Giordano awarded Beacon Bursary 2019
3 December 2019
Valentina Giordano, Research Fellow at BSP, has been awarded a Beacon Bursary.
The aim of the scheme is to advance the practice and culture of public and community engagement within UCL by enabling UCL staff and postgraduate students to:
- Explore mutually beneficial engagement between communities and UCL research and teaching.
- Be innovative in their engagement.
- Evaluate, learn from and share their engagement activities.
The Beacon Bursary funding scheme supports UCL’s Public Engagement Strategy which aims to embed public engagement as a normal, valued activity for UCL staff and students
Eight projects were funded in this round, including BSP Research Fellow, Valentina Giordano’s project ‘Place Alliance: Child-centred Urban Planning’. Students from Bobby Moore Academy, near UCL East, will be involved through an assembly, co-design workshops and the chance to share their work through public exhibitions.
