Grand Challenges Stage 4: Collecting Ideas

2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Virtual Session
Nathan Meier,
Facilitators from Knowinnovation will conduct an intensive microlab focused on generating ideas for UNL’s Grand Challenge themes. Virtual breakout rooms will convene to capture participants’ suggestions. The latter half of the lab will be spent grouping themes, which may be further refined by the steering committee prior to the next stage.

The virtual, multi-stage process will be facilitated by the UNL Office of Research and Economic Development on behalf of the Office of the Chancellor. It will comprise seven stages, starting June 5 and concluding mid-July, after which the selected grand challenges will be announced with the start of the 2020-21 academic year. The identified grand challenges themes will help guide activities and talent and be used to guide institutional investment and resource allocation. For questions about the process, contact Nathan Meier, assistant vice chancellor for research.
