3 February, 2017 - Among the Colours

Time: 10:00:00 - 17:00:00

An exhibition of two wall works exploring colour and surface, by Slade School of Fine Art staff Estelle Thompson, Acting Head of Graduate Painting, and Jo Volley, Deputy Director (Projects) & Senior Lecturer in Painting. Colour is significant in both artists’ practices; Estelle Thompson’s large acrylic wall work relates to her work as an abstract painter and Jo Volley’s wall pigments further explore aspects of the Pigment Timeline (currently on display in the UCL North Cloisters) and the Materials Research Project.

17 March, 2017 - Melting pot @UCLPartners

Time: 12:30:00 - 14:00:00

In the fast-paced environment of health and care, it is very easy to feel disconnected from one another as we grapple with the challenges of increasing specialisation, constant reporting and inspections, and the seemingly relentless need to be seen to deliver. Eating lunch or an afternoon tea together, and chatting over some common ground is a fantastic chance for us all to see things a little differently and help us make better connections, be better colleagues, and to better serve our patients and populations. Each lunch/tea is a 90-minute discussion forum with no other agenda, just bringing together diverse groups from across health and care, different disciplines, backgrounds, and settings. The aim is to discuss a particular topic of shared interest, and most importantly, enjoy lunch – all under the Chatham House rule. This week’s guest speaker for afternoon tea is Sir Sam Everington.

24 March, 2017 - Tricks of the trade: ideas for generating interdisciplinary research

Time: 10:00:00 - 12:00:00

An Early Career Researcher Event from UCL's Collaborative Social Science Domain. The challenges facing researchers are increasingly interdisciplinary. In this talk, Alan Wilson will present a view of the foundations of research planning which will support originality and ambition within interdisciplinary frameworks. He will discuss both basic and applied research (‘real challenges’) and will introduce the idea of super concepts that cross disciplines. Above all, he will argue that ‘thinking outside the box’ can generate new ideas and open up new territories. Presented by Sir Alan Wilson, Chief Executive, The Alan Turing Institute. N.B. This free event is only open to UCL Early Career Researchers.

3 May, 2017 - A Celebration of the Life and Work of Professor Brian Neville

Time: 09:00:00 - 13:30:00

should be delighted if you were able to join us for a series of lectures to celebrate the life and work of Professor Neville. Brian was appointed the first UK Chair of Paediatric Neurology, coming from Guys Hospital, in 1989. Upon retirement he was also the initial incumbent of the Prince of Wales’s Chair of Childhood Epilepsy until 2007. On arrival at the Institute he set on an expansion of both the academic and clinical neuroscience departments, responsible for the expansion of development of the epilepsy surgery programme and ultimately the complex epilepsy unit, as well as a combined neurological approach to neurodisability. Throughout his career, the training and development of juniors in the specialty was key; he contributed on an international level to standardisation of training in paediatric neurology. Above all, he was an extremely caring man, who always thought of the children and their families first and foremost. Please email to register.
