“Grand challenges are hard problems with solutions  that have societal level impacts. They are as much  rallying cry as research agenda, and are useful in  promoting innovation in the field and building strong  cross-disciplinary partnerships.

Special emphasis will  be put on moving past concepts of users to true  participation and past information to knowledge.”
