The Centre’s work is not just about solving immediate problems, but of taking a strategic and long-term view of the future. We look into long-term trends, stay abreast of developments in science and technology and keep track of current research into social needs.
Through events and our network of experts, funders and policymakers, we develop ambitious visions of the future and identify key areas in which challenge prizes can help unlock new ideas. We bring together stakeholders and the public to think about challenges in creative ways.
Do you need to learn more about a challenge you’re interested in solving?
We review the evidence to understand who the problems affects, market failures, and social, political and economic implications.
What does the problem community say and do?
We focus on the need for new solutions by working with stakeholders, learning about cutting-edge research and considering best practice.
Do you want to ensure your work stays relevant?
We look to new trends in society and technology to identify barriers and the next generation of prizes that can solve them.
