Graduate Studies Program GSP10
80 Participants from all over the world examine challenging, interdisciplinary, and real world problems that exemplify humanity’s grand challenges. The GSP10 focus is to understand the grand challenges of Water, Food, Energy, Upcycle and Space and the broad interactions, intersections, implications, and tools associated with these issues is examined in depth. What has been tried? What has worked, and what has failed? What is the primary challenge? What technology is needed? What philosophy is needed? What politic is needed?
During the program participants learn about the various exponentially growing cross-disciplinary technologies in the following 10 tracks: Technology Tracks: AI & Robotics, Nanotechnology, Networks & Computing Systems, Biotechnology & Bioinformatics, and Medicine & Neuroscience. Resource Tracks: Futures Studies & Forecasting Policy, Law & Ethics, and Finance & Entrepreneurship. Application Tracks: Energy & Ecological Systems, and Space & Physical Sciences.
Investigating all of the fields in exponential growth and strive to understand what is in the lab today, where we are heading for the next 5 -10 years, and how this technology will be useful to address the Grand Challenge in that timeframe. Interdisciplinary and intercultural groups produce comprehensive analyses and proposals regarding a problem of significance to the goals and vision of SU and the world. Deliverables includes a report on how the technology will be applicable to each Grand Challenge over a 10-year period, and secondly, what companies or research programs/NGOs should be started.
