UCL's award-winning campaign, Disruptive Thinking Since 1826 and hashtag #MadeAtUCL, has been phenomenal in its scope with hoardings at UCL East in London, graphics and animations on our website; a festival, podcast series, and involvement of the wider public to vote for their favourite breakthrough UCL research.
This year, we continue to feature more UCL breakthrough stories through Season Two of the podcast! This time, we are also sharing stories from our community, our pioneering researchers, staff, students and alumni who have or are achieving great things that impact society and help change the world for the better.
Catch up on Season 1 on Apple Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/id1482943970 or Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/5N3f3fffYZcqzJ9IiVxw9W
