Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

As part of Open Access week, UCL's Research Data Support team will be running a lunchtime session on the most effective ways to share your research data. The first half of the session will give researchers an introduction to the principles and practicalities involved in data sharing. It will also seek to outline the principles of FAIR data and how this relates to the production and use of data over the research lifecycle. During the second half of the session UCL's Research Data Management team and Open Access team will host a drop-in to help answer any questions about sharing research data, Open Access Publishing, RPS or Open Science.

8 November, 2018 - Urban Lab Films: The Experimental City

Time: 18:20:00 - 20:45:00

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

In the 1960s, renowned scientist, inventor and comic-strip author Athelstan Spilhaus, dreams of a new kind of city environment. Alarmed by a growing environmental crisis in America, he designs a domed metropolis where technology and innovative design eradicate the excessive pollution and waste levels typical in contemporary cityscapes. Spilhaus receives funding and support from high government officials, prominent scientists and political insiders to build ‘The Experimental City’ in rural Minnesota. Yet his utopian dream is halted with resistance from rural residents and state conservationists, who are driven by mistrust and pessimism. Directed by Chad Freidrichs (The Pruitt-Igoe Myth), 'The Experimental City' looks at the hopes and realities behind this mission to build a city of the future. This one-off Urban Lab Films screening is in partnership with Bertha DocHouse and will be followed by a Q&A chaired by Professor Matthew Beaumont (Co-Director, UCL Urban Laboratory).

Location: Bertha DocHouse, Curzon Bloomsbury, The Brunswick Centre, London, WC1N 1AW
