The Frontiers of Development is an interdisciplinary programme, which works to engage expertise from the four UK National Academies to hold two international symposia a year.

Bringing together participants from engineering, medical, social and science backgrounds across industry, academia and government to encourage interdisciplinary collaborations to tackle global development challenges. Symposia topics have the SDGs at the heart and the next event will explore themes such as:

  • Sustainable blue economy
  • Management and protection of marine ecosystems
  • Climate induced disaster mitigation and resilience.

Attendees are encouraged to apply for a GCRF Networking Grant award of up to £25,000 to seed networks created at the event.
