About the UCL Centre for Behaviour Change

Behaviour change is increasingly recognised as central to human wellbeing, social cohesion and sustainability. Changing behaviour is a challenging and complex process, requiring theories, methods and evidence from many academic disciplines. UCL has considerable expertise in behaviour change which will be harnessed by the newly established Centre for Behaviour Change.

Funded by the Provost’s Strategic Development Fund together with support from UCL’s Grand Challenge for Health and Wellbeing and five Faculty Deans, the Centre aims to increase the quality and quantity of academic activity in behaviour change at UCL, increase its public profile and its engagement with policy-makers, industry and support UCL in becoming a leading and world renowned centre for expertise in behaviour change.


Aims of the Centre:

  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 the academic, public and policy impact of UCL research and expertise in behaviour change, both nationally and internationally


Please note:

This event is open to UCL staff, students and colleagues external to UCL. Please select the appropriate ticket type (UCL or non-UCL) when registering.
