Cambridge Global Challenges

 

Cambridge Global Challenges (CGC) is a Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge that aims to fulfil its mission to contribute to society with a particular focus on the poorer half of the world’s population.

CGC currently involves over 400 researchers from across the University of Cambridge and their collaborators. Participants addressing the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) come from the physical and biological sciences, engineering and technology, business, law and medicine, and the arts, humanities and social sciences.

We collaborate with other networks and groups whose work engages global challenges in developing world contexts, such as the Strategic Research Networks, Strategic Research Initiatives and Interdisciplinary Research Centres of the University. For instance, we are working with the Synthetic Biology IRC and the CamBridgeSens SRN on smart imaging-oriented solutions to challenges faced by ODA-target countries, with the Cambridge Global Food Security IRC on malnutrition, and with the Energy@Cam IRC on sustainable energy conservation systems. Other collaborations include with the PublicHealth @ Cambridge SRN, the University of Cambridge Research Institute, the Digital Humanities Network, the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP), Cambridge-Africa, the Nano Doctoral Training Centre and with ideaSpace
