As part of its Behaviour Change theme, UCL's Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing (GCHW) is working with Professor Susan Michie to create a pan-UCL Centre for Behaviour Change. Professor Michie is Chair of Health Psychology in UCL Clinical, Educational & Health Psychology, Faculty of Brain Sciences.

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. It is a core issue behind resolution of complex questions within all four of UCL’s societally-directed Grand Challenges, and was the subject of a very successful GCHW-hosted seminar series, ‘Behaviour Change Month’ (November 2012) and Prize Workshop (January 2013)

The planned UCL Centre for Behaviour Change (UCL CBC) will bring together current world-leading activities. This is needed to fill a number of gaps and missed opportunities at UCL, such as lack of information as to what colleagues are doing, no lasting forum for discussions and collaboration building, and no “shop window” to showcase UCL’s research excellence in behaviour change. Our vision is to increase the quality and quantity of academic activity in behaviour change at UCL, increase its public profile and support UCL in becoming a leading and world renowned centre for expertise in behaviour change. The CBC’s  objectives are to:

1.       To foster cross-disciplinary research, teaching and knowledge transfer at UCL.

2.        To improve cross-disciplinary communication about behaviour change research, teaching and other activities at UCL.

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

There will be a UCL town meeting on Monday 13 May to discuss this opportunity, with speakers from a number of different UCL departments.

Discussion at the town meeting will be important in final refinement of an application to the Provost Strategic Fund, to support the creation of CBC, based on the premise that the Centre will be an institutionally important facility, adding unique value to the work and scholarly output of researchers from every contributing UCL department and Faculty.
