UCL Grand Challenges The UCL Grand Challenges are a key part of UCL's Research Strategy. The Grand Challenges convene and cultivate cross-disciplinary collaborations that explore joined-up solutions in six areas related to matters of pressing societal concern. The six areas related to matters of pressing societal concern are: Global Health, Cultural Understanding, Sustainable Cities, Human Wellbeing, Justice and Equality and Transformative Technology.
