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.
4th International Early Rail Conference Honours UCL Corporate Partnerships
8 October 2010
Further to the huge success of the 4th International Early Rail Conference in 2008, and the Trevithick Bicentennial Exhibition and Commemorative Dinner, UCL has been honoured in the long-awaited book of the Conference, which was recently published.
The Conference was invited to form the fulcrum of the season of
activities, organised and hosted by the UCL Centre for Transport
Studies and UCL Business Partnerships, in collaboration with The Science
Museum and sponsored by O2 and Eurostar.
The Introduction to the volume offers high praise for the UCL Business Partnerships initiative:
success of the conference - arguably the best yet - was due in no small
part to the personal attention given by Dr Anna Clark, UCL's Director
of Business Partnerships. Her vision and drive throughout all stages of
planning smoothed away any problems or difficulties in a spirit of great
friendship. The facilities and arrangements laid on for us by the
College, and the welcome extended to us, were much appreciated."
