Grand Challenges Networking Event
March 3, 2017
The University recently announced a Grand Challenges competitive awards process for interdisciplinary teams from the University for research endeavors focusing on two of the identified Grand Challenges, Fostering Just and Equitable Communities, and Assuring Clean Water and Sustainable Ecosystems.
With the understanding that some award proposals will involve collaboration with community partners, HUP convened a networking event on Friday, March 3 to support potential connections between University researchers and Hennepin County staff around Grand Challenges proposals. The event included County staff experts who talked about the work they do in the context of the University’s identified Grand Challenges.
The event resulted in multiple Grand Challenge Award proposals as well as additional connections. Several Hennepin County staff were asked to be community partners on faculty research projects.
