About the symposium

Conference format

Sessions will take a variety of forms – from plenary talks to challenge-led workshops, and from high-profile panel debates to data challenges – ensuring everyone has the opportunity to engage in new ideas and make a wide variety of new contacts.

You will hear directly from both funders and those working in-country on global challenges, build new partnerships, share your work, and consider how it could be applied in new areas.

Data challenge

The Jean Golding Institute's 2018 data challenge aims to better our understanding of farming practices and outcomes in low-income countries.

Entries for this year's competition are now closed and the winners will receive a £1,000 cash prize, presented at the symposium dinner on 12 April.

Funding available

We are strongly committed to ensuring the symposium is a catalyst for new connections with overseas partners and as such, funding is available to support international participation from ODA recipient countries.

Following the conference, pilot project funding is available to support the development of new connections and ideas. The deadline for applications for this funding has now passed.

Global challenge research

From improving global health to helping people prepare for natural hazards, our research collaborations are focused on solving real-world problems.
