Report on University-Led Grand Challenges
Lead Authors: Michelle Popowitz and Cristin Dorgelo
February 13, 2018

“This report is designed to provide an overview of the attributes and benefits of university-led Grand Challenges, with a summary of best practices and strategies for universities currently engaged or considering starting their own programs. The report also makes the case for a new Community of Practice on University-Led Grand Challenges and highlights opportunities for other sectors—philanthropy, associations, professional organizations, and Federal, State, and local governments—to support and participate in these efforts.”
