UCL Grand Challenges Summer School


For UCL Research Students


Research Student Summer School


GC Summer School 2017Real world problems rarely match up neatly with academic disciplines. The Grand Challenges Research Summer School aims to give UCL research students the skills they need to develop their own cross-disciplinary research ideas.

The programme will take participants from securing funding for their research idea, to creating impact from their research projects. Along the way participants will learn from the experience of successful cross-disciplinary researchers.

The UCL Grand Challenges Research Summer School has been held annually since 2014.

Research Sandpit

For the first time the Grand Challenges Summer School will be run as a fully facilitated sandpit to generate novel cross-disciplinary research ideas.

The summer school is open to all research students at UCL: from any course and at any stage of their studies.

You can find out more about previous summer schools in the galleries.
