Grand Challenges Lecture Series 2017/18

The theme of Grand Challenges is at the heart of the Institute’s programme and is the shared core of our new consortial degrees; Liberal Arts and Natural Sciences.

The lectures offer a distinctive range of interdisciplinary perspectives on pressing societal questions and are open to all: undergraduates, postgraduates, all staff members and the wider Keele community.

Details of our 2017/18 Grand Challenges lecture programme will be provided shortly.
