Focus on the Positive

Worried about the world's problems? Focus on the Positive is an event that gives you a chance to make things better. Join us to hear UCL researchers pitch their ideas, and you can actually help to decide which ones will get funded.

The winning researcher gets a £2000 prize to fix the world and one runner up wins £1000.

For a very special Focus on the Positive, the Grant Museum welcomes some of UCL’s inspiring researchers who will tackle the big issues of today, inspired by the collection. They might want to use the money to bring their research into the real world, start a project or work with a charity. It’s a great opportunity to debate some big questions, meet people who are passionate about changing the world, and make a difference.

Admission: £5 which will go to charity (sold on the door)

    Thanks for coming everyone-I thought it was a great event-sorry if you missed us-we were at the back with the sign, but the site itself was down! As promised-the winning proposal was the biology lab in a box, and second was the London Healthcheck
