GCRF COMPASS Cambridge has collaborated with BrainGain Academy for its 10-day “Leadership Program On Global Challenges”. 

The programme is highly competitive and will accept a select few students to participate. This program is organised by Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) project on Comprehensive Capacity building in the Eastern Neighbourhood and Central Asia project supported by UK Research Councils, otherwise knowns as the GCRF COMPASS project. 

This is jointly managed by University of Kent and University of Cambridge in the UK, ADA University, Azerbaijan; Belarusian State University, Belarus; Tajik National University, Tajikistan and University of World Economic Diplomacy, Uzbekistan; in partnership with BrainGain Academy in India.

This highly competitive programme for young professionals, university students, and entrepreneurs, will focus on the prevalent challenges such as global economic crisis, climate change, and health and well-being. World-class scientists, experienced and young, will help participants familiarise themselves with underlying and interconnected physical, sociological and economic processes behind upcoming technologies, yet to be reported in newspapers and blogs. These issues need to be tackled with comprehensive solutions which require an understanding of political systems and scientific knowledge. 

The participants will visit iconic landmarks of the university like Cavendish Labs where significant advances like the discovery of the DNA structure, electrons and neurons were made. They will also get to experience student life at University of Cambridge by going for trips to museums, picnics at Botanic Garden and go for meals and drinks at pubs in the campus.

The programme will take place at the University of Cambridge from December 7 to 17, 2019. — TNS
