King’s College London Innovation Forum, King’s College London Health and Life Science Enterprise Committee and Entrepreneurship have put together a unique opportunity for you to use your problem-solving skills to come up with solutions to tackle global health challenges we face today. The event is free and open to all at KCL. This special event offers you the opportunity to:
Develop ideas in teams to tackle health challenges including (but not limited to) obesity, antimicrobial drug resistance, diabetes and cancer.
Receive feedback on the idea from a panel of experts from PwC, QuintilesIMS etc.
Present your idea to a panel of judges with expertise in global health from leading organisations including GSK.
Each participant will receive a certificate and have chance to win a prize!
If you don’t have an idea or a team, don’t worry just come along and the organisers will assist you in finding a team. If you cannot participate in the workshop, you can still attend the final team presentation. There will be a reception with free food and drinks, plus the opportunity to build your professional networks and develop contacts that may be beneficial for the next step in your career.
KERN is an exciting new collaboration which launched in October 2016. KERN aims to foster a growing community of researchers interested in developing, sharing and celebrating their public engagement practice at King’s. The Engaged Researcher meetings and events are aimed at students, researchers and clinical staff at King’s College London. The idea behind KERN is to create a social network for researchers interested in engaging different audiences with their research. They also share monthly newsletters with opportunities to get involved, information on funding, resources and sharing examples of good practice.
