The Global Grand Challenages Summit is a major new initiative by the national academies of engineering in the UK, the US and China. The Summit will see leading international engineering thinkers and innovators sharing ideas with the next generation of engineers and policy-makers on how to solve the world's most pressing challenges.

The prosperity of future generations relies on unprecedented levels of inter-disciplinary and international cooperation in pursuit of solutions to global challenges. Whether the task be providing clean water for a soaring global population, or developing the resilience of our infrastructure to climate change, solutions demand more than isolated efforts. Instead, it is time to explore what could be accomplished with a globally-integrated systems approach.

The two day event will spark discussion and debate between thought leaders of today, and over 400 of the business, research and policy leaders of tomorrow, on how to develop the collaborations, networks and tools needed to solve our common global challenges.

Early career stage researchers, industry and policy professionals who are either engineers or committed to working with engineers, are invited to this global event to build and develop the collaborations, networks and tools that will be needed to tackle our common global challenges.
