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: Trust and Rapid Urbanisation.

These follow the successful Grand Challenges on Climate Change, Refugees & Migrants, Inequality and Living with 21st Century Technology.

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