UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences


Events and Meetings

The Research Coordination Office (RCO) hosts and supports a variety of symposia, conferences, seminars and workshops, the diversity of which reflects the wide areas of research that we support. We also promote external events that may be of interest to SLMS researchers.

The majority of events supported by the RCO are free to attend and open to everyone, unless otherwise stated.

All RCO organised events are publicised on this page and on the UCL Research Domains website.

You can also receive event news and updates via the SLMS Research Coordination Office Twitter feed and the domain e-newsletters.

Early Career Researcher Events

These regular seminars and workshops cover a variety of topics relevant to early career researchers (ECRs), with the aim of providing opportunities for ECRs to meet their peers, share ideas and experiences, and initiate collaborations. Topics include grant writing, career development and public engagement.

Grants Skills Events

Grant funding workshops and meetings help to train academics in the art of writing persuasive and successful grant applications. Attendees will pick up invaluable tips and insider knowledge about the grant application process, receive constructive feedback on their own applications, and get the opportunity to network and meet potential collaborators.

Research Funder Events

The RCO arrange networking events for research funders and academics in order to enable networking and provide an opportunity for funders to learn about new research activities, and researchers to gain a deeper understanding of what potential funders are looking for.

Symposia, Workshops and Conferences

These events are designed to raise the profile of UCL's life and medical sciences research activities, showcase expertise, and provide a platform on which to build cross-disciplinary research communities, partnerships and collaborations in academia and industry.
