The Office of the Vice-Provost (Research, Innovation & Global Engagement) is responsible for a number of initiatives that seek to stimulate cross-disciplinary collaboration and increase the impact of our research, including the Grand Challenges, Research Domains, and UCL Public Policy programmes.
We have a range of partnerships that aim to advance innovation and practice alongside commerce and industry, healthcare providers and other education and research institutions in the UK and abroad. These alliances provide opportunity and access to a multifacted and talented pool of resources that help inform new ways of thinking.
By sharing knowledge, education and practice we’re better able to improve networking opportunities for staff and students, promote development and support diversity and inclusion. Through our alliances, we develop new ideas, deliver innovative technologies, cultivate scientific exploration and inform policy.
UCL will continue to develop existing partnerships and lead on new programmes that can have a positive impact on social, environmental, legal and health issues across the globe.
