From 19 - 29 October 2020, UCL Grand Challenges (Office for the Vice-Provost Research) and the Global Engagement Office (Office for the Vice-Provost International) will host a two-week virtual conference exploring the role of universities in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The conference aims to understand universities’ approaches to the SDGs and how we can move forward to develop cross-disciplinary and beyond-boundary research and activities with our partners to address the goals. During the conference, we will collectively share our enthusiasm, commitment and innovative approaches to the SDGs. We will explore how the impact of the higher education - through research, global engagement, sustainability, teaching and community activities – can be greater than the sum of its parts.
