NAE Grand Challenges Scholars Program

2019 GCSP Workshop - Romania

On May 15-17, 2019, the University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest will host a Grand Challenges Scholars Program workshop to:

  • Inspire universities in the region to establish Grand Challenges Scholars Programs
  • Create connections between institutions interested in establishing the program
  • Support exchange and cooperation among the global GCSP community
  • Clarify the value of Grand Challenges Scholars to industry by engaging both regional industry and multinational corporations interested in engineering education and workforce development

To achieve these goals, the NAE and University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest will convene rectors, deans, administrators, faculty, current students, GCSP alumni, government representatives, aligned NGOs, and employers from throughout the region to discuss the importance of preparing the next generation of engineering leaders to meet the global challenges of the 21st century.

Registration is free, and a limited number of travel stipends are available for student attendees. To facilitate planning, we ask nominees to register as soon as possible and no later than April 19, 2019. Click here to register.
