Event description

Description

The ANU Grand Challenges Scheme invests in transformative research that will impact on the world’s most intractable problems. It is an initiative designed to build large scale and long-term interdisciplinary programs of research not typically supported by external competitive funding. It will provide critical strategic investment in blue-sky and high-risk activities that are recognised for bold leaps, rather than incremental advances.

Solutions to the world’s most intractable problems are likely to come from collaboration across diverse disciplines and stakeholders. The Grand Challenges Scheme aims to focus the creativity and talents of researchers from a range of disciplines around one ambitious goal. The ANU Grand Challenges Scheme will reward vision, imagination, and reasoned logic which shows how distinctive ANU research will impact on global issues.

During the 2018 Grand Challenges Pitch night, the finalists will present their Grand Challenges proposals. The presentations provide an excellent opportunity to experience ANU research, involve and enthuse students and staff, and stimulate thinking for the next round of Grand Challenges.

The Grand Challenges finalists’ public pitches will be held on Wednesday 19 September 2018, 5.00-7.00pm at the Auditorium of the Australian Centre on China in the World.
