This meeting, supported by the UCL Grand Challenges team, is intended to bring together people from different parts of UCL who may be interested in research on social media, both theory and practice. The aim is to foster greater research collaboration and identify future potential at UCL.
All UCL staff with research interests in social media are invited to attend the Town Meeting. Panel members will offer brief accounts of a sample of the work being undertaken on, and with, social media at UCL, and a general discussion with the audience will follow to help map out other relevant expertise, interest and opportunities.
Further details will be circulated closer to the event. Do feel free to contact Dr Simon Lock (Science and Technology Studies) firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the event, or have information about UCL research activities of use to such a project.
