Tackling the Industrial Strategy's 4 Grand Challenges

07 December 2018

The Industrial Strategy sets out 4 Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future and to help us tackle some of the major challenges facing the modern world. These challenges are:


  • artificial intelligence and data
  • ageing society
  • clean growth
  • the future of mobility.

Our universities are leading the way in helping society anticipate and face these challenges. A selection of examples of how Russell Group universities are using their strengths in teaching, research and innovation to support each of the Grand Challenges is highlighted in the report below.
