Anthony Antoine, UNU-CRIS Deputy Director, delivers Keynote Speech at the Helsinki Challenge Global Impact Camp, Brussels

26 September 2017

Anthony Antoine, UNU-CRIS Deputy Director, delivers keynote speech on "the salient role of the universities in implementing the UN 2030 Agenda and the particular importance of societal impact of multidisciplinary research in developing sustainable and global solutions" at the Helsinki Challenge Global Impact Camp in Brussels.

The Global Impact Camp in Brussels will be a two-day intensive co-creation session focusing on societal impact of research, funding and collaboration with international experts and EU decision-makers. The camp will consist of more public events such as the opening panel discussion “Grand Societal Challenges & Science Impact” and the co-creation sessions with the teams and the selected mentors.

The event will bring together the Helsinki Challenge community with experts, partners, advisors and mentors in order to develop the solutions of Helsinki Challenge teams. The aim of mentoring is to find the ways for creating maximum impact with a feasible scientific solution, which responds to a well-defined problem and clearly defined challenge. This might happen through a better design of the solution, finding funding, target user definition, problem definition or new collaboration and networks.
