Institute of Advanced Study and University College - reminder of Co-Convened Public lecture series: The Future of the University

(30 November 2017)

The 'Future of the University' public lecture series is a co-convened series by the Institute of Advanced Study and University College. In the face of this rapidly changing landscape, urging instant adaptive response, it is too easy to discount fundamental questions. What is the University now for? What is it, what can it be, what should it be? Are the visions of Humboldt and Newman still valid? If so, how? The next lecture in this series is entitled 'The Future of Scientific Research in UK Universities' and will be led by Professor Peter Coveney, University College, London. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, 13 December at 8pm in the Great Hall at University College. Lectures are free and open to all.

During this academic year leading figures on the university and political stages will deliver a public lecture in the Great Hall of the Castle. Speakers include Peter Horrocks CBE, Professor Peter Coveney, Lord David Willetts, and Professor N.Kate Hayles among others.

The next lecture in the series is noted below. Lectures are free and open to all.
