We greatly value our partnerships which allow us to push the boundaries and maximise the impact of new advances.
The ELLIS Unit at UCL spans multiple departments (Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, Department of Computer Science, Department of Statistics) and includes 29 faculty across the three departments. Find out more.
A joint venture between UCL and Inria, one of the leading French research institutes in computer science and applied mathematics. Inria have launched ‘The Inria London Programme’, an initiative to establish a presence in the UK and serve as a hub to increase collaborations with UK partners, such as universities, research institutes and the private sector. UCL has initiated this venture as a founding strategic partner. Further details.
The Science and Engineering South (SES) Consortium brings together the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Southampton, King’s College London, Queen Mary University of London, University College London and Imperial College London, creating the most powerful hub of research-intensive universities in the UK. SES supports and furthers research data and high performance computing.
The Met Office Academic Partnership (MOAP) brings together the Met Office and leading UK Universities in weather and climate science through a formal collaboration to advance the science and skill of weather and climate prediction. UCL’s contribution will be led by Joint Chair, Professor Serge Guillas (UCL Statistical Science). It involves researchers from three faculties and eight departments.
Through the partnership, UCL will build on existing Met Office collaborative projects to energise and modernise data science in weather and climate modelling to help tackle global issues. This includes sharing expertise in computer simulations, spatial data, trends and extremes, as well as research on space weather, including the development of techniques and data analysis for model validation, weather forecasting and climate projections.
The UCLH Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is a partnership between University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) and UCL (University College London). By working together we have become leaders in translating fundamental biomedical research into clinical research that benefits patients. NIHR BRC status has enabled this successful partnership to build on our expertise in areas such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and neurosciences.
The NIHR Great Ormond Street Hospital Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) supports medical research for children and young people at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and the UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH). The funding enables basic scientific discoveries made in laboratories to be translated into ‘first in man’ or ‘first in child’ clinical studies. Our research aims to accelerate discoveries into the basis of childhood rare diseases and to develop new diagnostics, imaging techniques and treatments, including cellular and gene therapies.
