Several grand challenges confront humanity in the 21st century, from feeding the world’s booming population to managing scarce natural resources and reducing our carbon footprint. The Grand Challenge Lecture Series presented by the Institute for Future Environments (IFE) explores these and other challenges and the possible solutions to them.
Join us on Friday 6 April at 4.00pm as we hear from Mr Bill Ferris AC, the Chair of Innovation and Science Australia (ISA). Mr Ferris will discuss ISA’s strategic plan for Australia to thrive in the global innovation race.
All Grand Challenge Lectures are free and open to the public. You can attend in person at the Kindler Theatre (GP-P421) in P Block on QUT’s Gardens Point campus or watch via livestream.
