How does the Berlin University Alliance Define a Grand Challenge?

A grand challenge is a complex global challenge of high current and future scientific and societal relevance for the solution of which innovative inter- and transdisciplinary approaches are required.
A research field that addresses a grand challenge addresses an epistemic interest and is compatible with excellent, international research.
A grand challenge can harness the special competencies or particular potentials of the scientific stakeholders in Berlin, as well as of those stakeholders not affiliated with academia.
