25 October, 2018 - FAIR Data Sharing

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

As part of Open Access week, UCL's Research Data Support team will be running a lunchtime session on the most effective ways to share your research data. The first half of the session will give researchers an introduction to the principles and practicalities involved in data sharing. It will also seek to outline the principles of FAIR data and how this relates to the production and use of data over the research lifecycle. During the second half of the session UCL's Research Data Management team and Open Access team will host a drop-in to help answer any questions about sharing research data, Open Access Publishing, RPS or Open Science.

Location: IAS Common Ground, South Wing UCL Main Building , London, WC1E 6BT

30 October, 2018 - The lit environment its context and history

Time: 18:30:00 - 21:00:00

The Lit Environment is a useful term to describe what we create when we provide lighting for people. It is a useful concept as it is based around what users of the space will perceive in the area. The lecture will explore the history of the lit environment and examine the factors that have influenced lighting practice including technology and the way user's needs are understood. It will then consider our current thinking in this area and try rationalise the different approaches taken by varying parts of the lighting profession. Finally the lecture will review current opportunities and constraints provided by technological change, sustainability and user expectations and equally importantly discuss what this means for the lighting profession.

Location: G06 Ambrose Fleming Lecture Theatre, Roberts Building, Malet Place, London, WC1E 7JE

8 November, 2018 - Urban Lab Films: The Experimental City

Time: 18:20:00 - 20:45:00

Organised by UCL Urban Laboratory

In the 1960s, renowned scientist, inventor and comic-strip author Athelstan Spilhaus, dreams of a new kind of city environment. Alarmed by a growing environmental crisis in America, he designs a domed metropolis where technology and innovative design eradicate the excessive pollution and waste levels typical in contemporary cityscapes. Spilhaus receives funding and support from high government officials, prominent scientists and political insiders to build ‘The Experimental City’ in rural Minnesota. Yet his utopian dream is halted with resistance from rural residents and state conservationists, who are driven by mistrust and pessimism. Directed by Chad Freidrichs (The Pruitt-Igoe Myth), 'The Experimental City' looks at the hopes and realities behind this mission to build a city of the future. This one-off Urban Lab Films screening is in partnership with Bertha DocHouse and will be followed by a Q&A chaired by Professor Matthew Beaumont (Co-Director, UCL Urban Laboratory).

Location: Bertha DocHouse, Curzon Bloomsbury, The Brunswick Centre, London, WC1N 1AW
