Rutgers GRAND CHALLENGES for the 21st Century Competition
Are you a BIG THINKER?
Rutgers Institute for Advanced Materials , Devices and Nanotechnology; Rutgers Energy Institute; and the Rutgers NSF-IGERT Programs are sponsoring a student competition open to all undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral students to solicit and share our best ideas.
Grand Challenges are ambitious yet achievable goals that capture the public’s imagination and that harness innovation and breakthroughs in science and technology uch as putting a human on the moon and the human genome project.
