About Grand Challenges


Shaping responses to the complex issues facing humanity, the Grand Challenges Program puts UNSW’s research squarely into the real world. Each challenge engages scholars, policymakers and the public, through a series of critical discussions, debates, events and activities about one of the tests of our time.

The current Grand Challenges are: Rapid Urbanisation and Living with 21st Century Technology. These follow the successful challenges on Climate Change, Refugees & Migrants and Inequality

The Grand Challenges Program is led by Scientia Professor Rob Brooks.
