22 January, 2019 - Dr Jason Hickel: Understanding Global Inequality

Time: 18:00:00 - 19:30:00

Organised by UCL Union

Join us as we host Dr Jason Hickel, an athropologist at LSE, to speak about the drivers of global inequality, and how it global poverty is both an urgent issue and a direct product of the political order. We will also be holding a book signing of 'The Divide', a book he authored which was published just last year. His book explores why the income gap between North and South has grown so dramatically since the 1980s. Hickel argues that the global economy has been organized, from the onset of colonialism to the modern trade system, in a way that benefits a handful of rich nations at the expense of most of the rest of the world.

23 January, 2019 - UCL Data Strategy Townhall

Time: 02:00:00 - 17:00:00

This townhall meeting is for all UCL researchers and professional service staff who would like to contribute to the development of UCL research data strategy. Our vision is for UCL to create an environment that enables researchers to flourish using data. Our definition of research data includes external data created in a non-research context which is used as the starting point for research and data generated during the research process. The data could be open, or contain commercial, sensitive or personal details. It is also possible to contribute online.

30 January, 2019 - Public health engagement with academy and free schools to enable evidenced-based health promotion in schools

Time: 11:00:00 - 15:00:00

This workshop will share early findings from an NIHR study exploring how public health experts can work with academy school chains and free school groups to improve staff and student health. Young people’s health and wellbeing can have a significant impact on their education. Schools can act as a key setting to promote the importance of health to children, young people and the staff that work there. One third of state-funded schools in England are Academy Trusts (or part of a multi-Academy Trust) and around half of all pupils in England are taught in Academy Trusts. Despite these figures little research has been carried out to look at how public health experts can work with academy chains and groups of free schools.

15 February, 2019 - Healthy Ageing Symposium

Time: 09:30:00 - 18:00:00

The UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering and the UCL Institute of Digital Health are organising a joint event which aims to address the challenges of "Healthy Ageing", to help people to live in their homes for longer, tackle loneliness, and increase independence and wellbeing. By fostering knowledge exchange and by providing networking opportunities between policy, research, business, and consumer communities we aim to build the research community in this area and identify new opportunities for collaboration to improve the lives of older people and address some of the key challenges of an ageing society.

21 February, 2019 - Director's Seminar: Why are food systems failing diet-related ill-health - and what can be done?

Time: 16:00:00 - 18:00:00

We are joined by Professor Corinna Hawkes, Professor of Food Policy, Director, Centre for Food Policy, City University for a Director's Seminar. The state of the global diet is dire, much of which is due to the functioning of the food system. In turn, we face many barriers to making effective policy decisions to improve diets through the food system. But change is possible. This presentation will focus on the major challenges in food systems preventing better diets for all - and how policy, people and alignment with economic prosperity will be key to addressing these challenges. It will provide an overview of the latest data on the global diet, the barriers to more effective decision-making and the conflicts preventing change. It will specify actions needed for a better future, including by making changes in governance and leadership, creating co-benefits for diet-related health, environmental sustainability economic prosperity, and taking a more people-centred approach.

21 February, 2019 - Workshop: Using multiple longitudinal studies for age-period-cohort investigations

Time: 09:30:00 - 16:00:00

Longitudinal studies provide rich data for life course epidemiology (e.g., understanding some age-related process or its causes and consequences), but this power is magnified by working across multiple studies. In particular, with multiple cohorts (representative of the same population) born at different points in time researchers can investigate how some age-related process or association has changed over time in response to shifts in the behavioural, nutritional, and political etc environments. This workshop will focus on the use of multiple longitudinal studies for age-period-cohort investigation. This event is aimed at PhD students and early-career researchers, however everyone is welcome to attend. Please note that spaces are limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
