UCL has been hailed as a “shining example” for supporting student entrepreneurs by the Guardian in an article about whether universities are doing enough to help students start new businesses.
Knowledge Exchange Champions
The impact of our research is of great importance at UCL;
the strength of the university, in part, lies in the excellent work that
academics throughout the institution are doing in transferring their research
to the wider community. Often, however, this work can go unnoticed.
UCL Enterprise is looking to support short Knowledge Exchange projects developed by UCL staff. Award holders, known as Knowledge Exchange Champions, will distinguish themselves as leaders of knowledge exchange and research impact within their field. They will seek to improve engagement in Knowledge Exchange within the UCL community, contribute to UCL’s enterprise strategy as a whole, and in particular the strategy of the faculty in which they are based.
