We work closely with the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and are currently exploring partnership activities on 6G, responsible engineering and complex systems.
UK-US-China trilateral partnership
We work in partnership with the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) and the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE) on the Global Grand Challenges Summit (GGCS) series. Since 2013, the series has aimed to accelerate international engineering collaboration to address global challenges.
We hosted the 2019 summit in London, which convened inspirational world leaders with the next generation of engineers and changemakers to build creative collaborations and solve the grand challenges facing humanity.
International collaboration has never been more important than during the COVID-19 pandemic. The three Academies published a joint statement on COVID-19, committing to work together to promote international exchange and contribute to global economic recovery and a more robust public health system.
Webinar series: Engineering’s role in catalysing Covid-19 response, recovery and resilience
Together with the CAE and NAE, we delivered a webinar series in 2021 to explore the work of researchers and innovators across the globe pursuing the most impactful engineering advances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
