UCL Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing
Introducing the UCL Grand Challenges

The UCL Grand Challenge of Human Wellbeing considers the diverse factors that influence our sense of physical and emotional
wellbeing, such as ageing, behaviour and social interaction affected by our
biology, the environment (built and natural) in which we live, and how we relate
to and look after one another. It harnesses UCL’s research expertise from across our academic community, including everything from philosophy, law, economics, psychology, architecture and art, through to health, medicine, neuroscience and engineering – and many other disciplines.
"Directly or indirectly, well-being, in some shape or other...is the subject of every thought, and object of every action, on the part of every known Being...nor can any intelligible reason be given for desiring that it should be otherwise."
