About the symposium

Resolving the world’s most pressing development challenges requires a radically more ‘joined up’ approach to delivering research. The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) has provided a catalyst for UK institutions to collaborate across disciplines, sectors and continents in pursuit of real development outcomes.

Following a year of awards under GCRF, the University of Bristol is delighted to host an international symposium to share best practice, develop new connections, and generate new research partnerships that help to tackle global development challenges.

Join us for a packed three-day symposium, focused on the broad themes of:

  • Food security
  • Energy in a developing context
  • Global Health
  • Poverty
  • Insecurity and conflict
  • Migration
  • Natural hazards.
