Professor David Price, Vice-Provost (Research), UCL

The UCL Grand Challenges is proud to present Showcase 2018, an afternoon of presentations, discussion and celebration of this unique cross-disciplinary research programme.

The Grand Challenges programme explores joined-up solutions in six areas related to matters of pressing societal concern and a wealth of collaborations have been kick-started since it began in 2009.

Showcase 2018 is just one way that the Grand Challenges is showing cross-disciplinary and external engagement in addressing societally complex problems, creating pathways to their resolution and achieving impact within UCL and externally in society.

Drop in to see an exhibition of posters, showcasing the work of Grand Challenges all day on Wednesday 18th April. From 13:45 – 14:45, Vice-Provost (Research) David Price will introduce some of the many cross-disciplinary project teams to have taken part in Grand Challenges. Hear their stories and find out all about the exciting research they have undertaken.
