WUN is committed to investing in research that makes a difference to the world. We bring the researchers and resources of our world leading member universities together to develop solutions that no one university or nation can solve alone. Our international, interdisciplinary research teams are collaborating with universities, research centres, civil society, government and industry to solve some of societies most vexing concerns.
Our Global Challenges are four identified research themes where WUN has particular capacity to develop solutions to issues of significant global concern. They form the key research pillars of WUN.
Our Cross-Cutting Themes are complementary research themes that intersect with the Global Challenges and add important dimension to them.
Together, they form a research matrix that demonstrates the breadth and depth of WUN's research portfolio.
