Purpose of the scheme

UCL 2034 Grand Challenges
Each of the Grand Challenges UCL 2034 Grant awards supported the goals of UCL 2034, UCL's 20-year institutional development strategy.

Awards of up to £10,000 were available for co-production activity between researchers in different UCL faculties, or between UCL and external partners (academic or non-academic). 

The awards supported cross-disciplinary, collaborative, outwardly facing activities, which would develop Principal Theme 3 of the UCL 2034 strategy, ‘Addressing global challenges’, while also supporting the development of at least one of the other principal themes.
