Inter-University Poster Competition 2002

As a result of collaboration with the graduate communities at the University of Cambridge, Imperial College London, and the University of Oxford with University College London, UCL ran a Joint Inter-University Poster Competition for graduates, on the day after UCLs' usual competition.(Due to the nature of the institutions involved in the collaboration, this was limited to Life and Clinical Sciences).

This offered graduate students an opportunity to meet, advertise and discuss the innovative research they are undertaking, thereby providing them with an opportunity to raise the profile of their research.

30 "Best Entries" (including the winners) were selected from UCL's competitions in Life Sciences and Clinical Sciences the previous day and went forward to compete with 30 entries from each of the 3 other institutions. 4 judges from each institution chose the winners and we hope that this proved an excellent way for students from all four institutions to meet each other.
