Event description


UCL Health Economics Symposium 2018

Monday 5 February 2018

UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, 30 Guilford Street, London

Registration for the UCL Health Economics Symposium has now ended.

For those who didn't manage to secure a ticket in advance, you are welcome to come to the venue during registration and we will be able to register you on the day.

This one-day Symposium, organised by the UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain, will bring together a wide range of health economists, providing a great oppotunity for you to find out more about health economics research at UCL and further afield.

The day will take a life course approach. The morning will focus on health economics in early childhood, followed by later childhood and adolescence. After lunch, attendees will hear from relevant research funders about their strategic vision for health economics funding, and the afternoon will continue through the life course, focusing on adulthood and the elderly.

Speakers from UCL and beyond will present their innovative research and answer your questions. Attendees will also enjoy two keynote lectures from internationally leading speakers.

There is no registration fee for this event, and food and drink will be provided. Due to space limitations timely registration is essential.

The UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain brings together researchers and practitioners across UCL and beyond, to explore the factors that determine health and disease in populations, and to develop, test, and measure the impact of interventions and service improvement to enhance the health and wellbeing of the public, and reduce inequalities in health status.

Sitting within the Populations & Lifelong Health Domain is the Health Economics theme-
Researchers across UCL conduct a wide range of health economics research, and have particular expertise in:

  • economic evaluations within clinical trials
  • economic evaluation using decision analytic modelling and discrete event simulation
  • econometric methods for health research
  • policy design and evaluation
  • health insurance and health care financing
  • resource allocation
  • early childhood interventions
  • measurement of health and health care inequalities.

Research is undertaken across a range of disease areas and in the UK and globally.
