FLA: UX & Digital Design Week

13 - 17 August, 2018

London, UK

Get inspiration for your current projects and advice on how to build a design team of your dreams. Find out the secrets of what makes products successful and what mistakes companies made when they were building new services. During a whole week you’ll immerse yourself into London's technology and creative industry exploring the hottest trends and latest inventions. You will have a chance to meet the teams behind the most ground-breaking products and learn how they approach design strategy, work with clients and improve their services. This programme consists of lectures, round table discussions and mini-workshops all conducted at the actual company offices – that gives even better perspective on how they work and collaborate. Some people call our format a 'design safari', some say it's a VIP behind-the-scenes experience or a research trip. This is a very fresh way to learn and explore the industry. And the best part is – you will spend this week as a part of a small group of 20 like-minded entrepreneurs, UX designers and product managers from around the globe. Programme structure Every day will consist of various activities to maximise your learning experience. Morning session: it is the first session of the day, it will take the form of a lecture, round table or a workshop in one of London's top companies. Lunch break: between the morning and afternoon sessions we will have a short break when you will have an opportunity to have lunch and enjoy the surroundings of the day programme locations. Afternoon session: it is the second session of the day, where you will have a chance to visit another top London agency and listen to their team revealing secrets they use in everyday work. Debrief and the city: after a long day of absorbing new ways of working, idea brainstorming and creative exercises we will debrief the content of the day to better organise them in our minds. This activity will be short and engaging and it will take place straight after the afternoon session in locations that we can then visit as cultural and social activities such as museums, galleries, event spaces or bars. Who is this programme for? — Creative directors and heads of design departments — Digital product designers, UX and visual designers — Design managers and team leads — UX researchers and analysts — Service designers and product owners You will learn: — Best practices in conducting research, prototyping, testing, and product launch for web, mobile, wearables, and internet of things — How human centred design can help your projects — How do world’s best design team and companies work: processes, teams, workspaces, and culture — Methods and tools for digital product design — Digital product design trends — Different ways to use design to change people's behaviour — Oldest pubs and best craft beers Course curator Yury Vetrov, Head of Portal UX, Mail.Ru Group Yury heads Portal UX design team at Mail.Ru Group, one of two largest Russian internet companies that develops 20 multi-platform products.

On 26 & 27 April 2018, London will host the 16th Biosimilar Medicines conference. This year’s flagship event will gather top EU and global regulators, officials, healthcare actors as well as industry leaders, to foster open exchange and debate on the role of the biosimilar medicines sector in “Biosimilar Medicines: Unlocking the Full Potential of Biologics”. Over two days, participants will dive into a dynamic programme – a crossroads between technical, scientific, market discussions and the overarching healthcare policy agenda. With 15 years of experience-sharing on scientific assessment, regulatory approval and the introduction of biosimilar medicines in clinical practice, this conference will take us to new uncharted waters in preparing for this new era. Biosimilar medicines have been game changers in the therapeutic areas where they have been used (e.g. rheumatology, gastroenterology) with positive benefits on access to treatment, and therefore on patient outcomes. They are about to enter cancer patient pathways where the anticipated benefits will represent a unique opportunity for re-investment in needed healthcare products and services.
