Behaviour Change at UCL
Behaviour Workshops attended the launch of UCL’s Centre for Behaviour Change on Monday 17th February. The aims of the Centre are:
1. To foster leadership, cross disciplinary research, teaching and knowledge transfer at UCL.
2. To improve cross- disciplinary communication and collaboration within and beyond UCL.
3. To enhance academic, public and policy impact of UCL’s research and expertise in behaviour change, both nationally and internationally.
The Centre was launched to a packed house of academics, students and behaviour change professionals by Professor Susan Michie, who has spearheaded the development of this exciting new initiative.Susan Michie’s introduction was followed by presentations from Professor Alexi Marmot on design for behaviour change and Professor Mike Kelly – whose thoughts on behaviour change and rocket science we covered in the previous post.
Behaviour Workshops looks forward to following the progress and outputs from the centre and attending the programme of events it has planned for 2014. Further details about the centre can be found here.
