About the Grand Challenges Programme
The world faces complex global problems that must be addressed to ensure humanity a healthy and sustainable future. To address these grand challenges, scientists, social scientists, engineers and other researchers must collaborate across disciplines to advance solutions that policymakers, business leaders and civil society representatives can implement. Springer Nature is a leading academic publisher that operates globally and across all academic research disciplines, and therefore is well positioned to deliver rigorous research to those in a position to take action. In 2017 we launched our Grand Challenges program to highlight some of the best work we publish on these topics across our different brands to help develop solutions to these pressing global problems.
