UCLB was delighted to host the annual Summer Reception event on 16th July to celebrate a year of successes with drinks, canapés and entertainment against the backdrop of the neo-classical UCL Portico and Flaxman Gallery.
In an informal setting, the event provided a networking opportunity for UCLB, UCL and industry to promote the value of technology and knowledge transfer activity. Guests included venture capitalists, industry partners, potential industry partners, funding bodies and UCL colleagues and friends.
UCLB was especially delighted to welcome UCL’s President and Provost, Professor Malcolm Grant who addressed the guests with a speech about the importance and value technology transfer brings to UCL.
In addition to entertainment in the form of a Latin band and a professional magician guests were entered into a raffle to win iPod touch media players to promote UCL iTunes U, a new initiative introduced to UCL with UCLB’S support where users can download lectures, interviews, seminars and news, and play audio and video.
Cengiz Tarhan, Managing Director of UCL Business, said “It’s great to see so many guests join UCL Business in such a delightful setting as the UCL Portico…..UCLB has achieved such a great deal in the last few years and many of those attending have been our partners through this period. We look forward to working with them in the future and many others as our portfolio of activity grows”
