UCL Grand Challenges


Get Involved

UCL researchers can get involved in the Grand Challenge of Cultural Understanding in several ways.

Small Grants

All of the Grand Challenges now have funding available to support UCL researchers with cross disciplinary work. There is a regular small grants scheme, as well as a newly established scheme set up for doctoral students and funding available through the UCL 2034 strategy.

Major projects

The Grand Challenge of Cultural Understanding has funded major events and projects. If you have an idea for a relevant research project that is cross-disciplinary in nature, please contact us and we would be happy to discuss it.

Roundtables and workshops

UCL Grand Challenges have helped to facilitate ‘roundtables’: informal, community-building gatherings of experts with a common interest in a subject, who might not otherwise find the opportunity to interact. If you have a subject that you think would excite academics from across disciplines at UCL and beyond, get in touch with us to find out if the Grand Challenge of Cultural Understanding can help put an event together.
