About the Futures Institutes
We are creating four Futures Institutes with a focus on delivering research and education to address some of the most pressing global challenges.
The Institutes will become recognised centres of excellence for driving world-changing research and interdisciplinary postgraduate education in climate, health, education and society.
The Institutes’ members will co-create and deliver research with policymakers, businesses, governments and the general public, and the collaborative culture of the Institutes will enable early-career postgraduate researchers to flourish.
