Keep in mind that a grand challenge must meet the following criteria:

  • Challenge must be big, important, and compelling.
  • Scientific evidence indicates that the challenge could be solved.
  • Meaningful and measurable progress to address the challenge can be made in a decade.
  • The challenge is likely to generate interdisciplinary or cross-sector collaboration.
  • Solution to the challenge requires significant innovation.
