Cambridge Grand Challenges

These intensive events for researchers and non-academic research users are dual purpose: to enable researchers to develop skills in stakeholder engagement; and to identify opportunities for future collaboration.

The workshops are open to research students, including ESRC DTP students, researchers and academics. Workshops are held with business, local government and other public sector or third sector organisations such as hitherto the World Bank, UNESCO, Save the Children, International Red Cross/Red Crescent and others.

The scheme helps identify and establish new strategic partnerships between external research users and Cambridge. Topics for consideration are carefully defined in consultation with the external organisation. An appropriate mix of interdisciplinary research expertise is then identified and the workshop is promoted internally to appropriate research groups/departments.
