University of South Florida

We have worked with the University of South Florida in helping them to set up their Operation: Global Action programme. The University of South Florida observed Grand Challenges for a couple of years, and we collobarated with them to set up their programme, which is modelled off the Grand Challenges programme.

In 2019, a small number of students from the University of South Florida came over to take part in Grand Challenges, and we expect this to continue in future years. 

COVID-19 update

Due to COVID-19, Grand Challenges will not be able to go ahead in its usual face to face format. Instead, we have launched an online programme similar to Grand Challenges called Challenges Online, running 22nd-26th June 2020. Please go to the Challenges Online website for more information and to sign up.

Grand Challenges will return in its usual format in 2021.
