Cambridge Global Challenges


At each workshop a visiting organisation will present a number of issues that are undermining its work or the wellbeing of the populations it works with. Researchers will discuss innovative responses to the issues raised and evolve research agendas to encapsulate these. The intention is to evolve collaborative research proposals to submit to the Global Challenges Research Fund and similar funding bodies.

The first two workshops will be with UNICEF Innovation on technologies for children in an urbanizing world, and with WSUP on financing water and sanitation for the urban poor in developing world cities. 

Please let us know if you would like to be kept updated about this workshop series. 

Cambridge Global Challenges is a Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge that aims to enhance the contribution of its research towards addressing global challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
