The Global Grand Challenges Summit 2019 is the launch of a second series of summits jointly hosted by the UK, US and Chinese academies of engineering, inspired by the 14 Grand Challenges for Engineering.
Moreover, the Royal Academy of Engineering is inviting university teams to participate in the Global Grand Challenges Summit Competition 2019, a programme of challenge-led innovation, design and business development, culminating in the opportunity for teams to attend a Collaboration Lab event and the Global Grand Challenges Summit in London, UK.
Furthermore, the event will convene inspirational world leaders with the next generation of engineers and changemakers to build creative collaborations and solve the grand challenges facing future world of 10 billion people. In addition, the Summit will take place on 16-18 September 2019 in London, at the Southbank Centre’s wonderful Queen Elizabeth Hall, with 900 of the next generation’s engineers, researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, as well as policymakers in attendance.
Humanity is facing unprecedented challenges from a population growing to 10 billion by 2050, and accelerating degradation of the planet and its resources. At the same time, exponential technological changes are making the world smarter, faster and more connected, but with unanticipated consequences.
Moreover, Engineers are crucial to the international effort to address these rapidly evolving, unpredictable challenges. People need to embed collaboration, diversity, and global responsibility into the solutions they create, transforming the way engineers work, think, and are taught.
