Applications now open to host a stall at UCLH’s Research Open Day 2019

Researchers can now apply to host a stall at UCLH’s massive open day to celebrate research and innovation on Thursday 4 July 2019, 1pm–4:30pm at University College Hospital in Euston.

The event is a fantastic opportunity for researchers to share their work with a wide audience. Hundreds of visitors of all ages from the local community, patient groups, schools, and UCLH itself come along to the open day – now in its sixth year – and the day always proves to be a huge success.

We ask researchers to ensure that stalls are:

  • as interactive and engaging as possible
  • about research or innovation that is UCLH-based
  • run by researchers and their teams.

We want visitors to leave the day feeling that they know a lot more about research, are interested in getting involved in research – and that they had a lot of fun.

We will be looking for activities that are truly engaging for visitors, rather than a simple display of posters and leaflets, and we will be giving out prizes for the best stalls.

Games, challenges or the chance to try out a piece of equipment tend to work very well. Previous successes include having a go at laparoscopic surgery, learning how ultrasound works by searching for items in jelly, and guessing nutritional values in common foods.
