Time: 14:00:00 - 15:00:00

Dr Vicky Robinson, CBE, Chief Executive of the National Centre for the Replacement, Reduction and Refinement of Animals in Research (NC3Rs) will be speaking about the work of the NC3Rs which is a UK-based scientific organisation dedicated to replacing, refining and reducing the use of animals in research and testing (the 3Rs). It collaborates with scientists and organisations from across the life sciences sector, nationally and internationally, including universities, the pharmaceutical, chemical and consumer products industries, other research funders, and regulatory authorities to support the commitment of the scientific community to the 3Rs by funding research and early career development, supporting open innovation and the commercialisation of 3Rs technologies, and stimulating changes in policy, regulations and practice.

28 September, 2016 - On the Design of Personal Health Technologies for Mental Disorder

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Speaker: Professor Jakob E. Bardram, Technical University of Denmark In this talk I will present our research into the design of personal health technologies for patients suffering from mental disorders. Based on research done as part of the EU-funded MONARCA project, I will present the user-centred design of the technology and present results from clinical pilot trials. I will also share our experience in being part of “real” randomized clinical trial that seeks to establish clinical evidence for the efficacy of personal health technology in improving treatment outcome. I will reflect upon the challenges of combining a user-centred, agile, flexible design process with a rigours clinical trial.

29 September, 2016 - The Data Dialogue: When research crosses borders

Time: 09:30:00 - 17:00:00

In an increasingly globalised world, research is reaching beyond geographical borders, raising questions on the methods, laws, and possibilities in moving or sharing data internationally. As the volume and type of data we create becomes more varied, sensitive, and complex, we need to ask: what are our own responsibilities as professional researchers collecting data overseas? Who is ultimately accountable for data produced with foreign partners? What happens when national laws and policy differ dramatically? May strategies be usefully shared within or across disciplines? We are pleased to invite Early Career Researchers, Academics, and Support Staff to research projects with an international sharing focus. Join us at The University of Oxford to hear from key speakers from the UK’s international research landscape and join a discussion amongst peers with tangible experience in accessing, sharing, and managing data across borders.

3 November, 2016 - UCL Ageing Event – cultivating research connections across the University

Time: 13:30:00 - 18:00:00

This is a half-day event aimed primarily at UCL staff from postdoctoral research associates to senior lecturers who work on ageing research in a wide variety of disciplines, including epidemiology, bioscience, neuroscience, engineering, economics and infection and immunity. UCL has significant strength in ageing research, however, key researchers at UCL that work on ageing are unfamiliar with other scientists who work in different age-related disciplines. This is a missed opportunity, especially given the increased focus on lifelong health and wellbeing in the Government’s current priorities for research funding. The purpose of this meeting is therefore to enable more junior UCL researchers working on all aspects of ageing to network and to encourage new collaborations.
