Timothy Barnes, director of UCL Enterprise Operations and director of UCL Advances, is to step down from these roles at the end of December.

UCL Enterprise Operations and UCL Advances are both institutions within University College London that support entrepreneurship from the university's students and staff.

Barnes took up his role leading UCL Advances in 2007 following his launch of the London Entrepreneurs' Challenge in 2002 that also helped University College London students who wanted to start businesses.

Barnes joined UCL Enterprise Operations as a director in 2011.

While working at University College London it was recognised by the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers as the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership 2014. The university was also shortlisted for the Times Higher's Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2015 and for the inaugural Duke of York Award for University Entrepreneurship.

Barnes said: “As well as working here for over eight years, I am also an alumnus, so UCL will always be very close to my heart. We have achieved great things here over the last eight years and I know UCL’s enterprise activities will continue to thrive and prosper.”

Celia Caulcott, vice-provost for enterprise, said: “Tim has made an outstanding contribution to enterprise and entrepreneurism at University College London in the last eight years, and we look forward to building on this achievement. I wish Tim the very best in his future endeavours which will, I know, continue to be enterprising and entrepreneurial.”
