The pace of technological and economic change brought the world together, if unequally. What we have now seen is that we need collective responses to threats, challenges and opportunities and that inequality is a barrier to success.
In 2019, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) launched an ambitious new approach to tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges by investing in 12 multinational interdisciplinary research hubs, the scale and scope of which are a first.
These challenge-led hubs are focused on finding solutions to acute challenges which have proved resistant to change in the past and cannot be solved by one single organisation, discipline or country alone.
The 12 hubs are funded through the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).
