Annual UCLB Summer Reception

4 July 2014

On Tuesday 1 July 2014 UCLB hosted its Annual Summer Reception.

The evening was set against the backdrop of the neo-classical UCL Portico and the newly renovated Flaxman Gallery. The event provided an informal networking opportunity for UCL’s researchers, guests of UCLB including representatives from UCL’s spin outs, industry, venture funds and many other collaborators to promote UCL Enterprise and demonstrate the benefits of technology and commercialisation taking place at UCL.

UCLB’s Managing Director, Mr Cengiz Tarhan, addressed guests and outlined some of the company’s major achievements over the last 12 months.

Mr Tarhan then welcomed Professor Bob Sheil, Director of The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL who invited guests to attend a private viewing of the prestigious Bartlett Summer Show at the Slade School of Fine Arts. The show provides an opportunity to view the works of promising emerging talent at The Bartlett School of Architecture.
