Networking Events and Workshops

Facilitating knowledge exchange and interdisciplinary discussion 

We host a series of networking events and workshops throughout the year that bring together students and professionals, from both within the LSE and internationally. Our events aim to foster interdisciplinary discussion and faciliatate knowledge exchange on topics related to global health. 

Our networking events and workshops range from internal events for LSE students and staff to public research showcases. We do so both in order to inform our ongoing research through engagement with others and to raise awareness of LSE's rigorous social science approach to global health issues and challenges.

Here, you'll find upcoming and previous events hosted by the Global Health Initiative, as well as other Departments from across the LSE.
