Oktoberfest for Scientists: Previewing the Berlin Grand Challenges Meeting
Oktoberfest for Scientists: Previewing the Berlin Grand Challenges Meeting ,Every Fall, the Gates Foundation publishes a report with 17 line charts that track progress on key health and development indicators like the global poverty rate.
The Grand Challenges meeting is, at its core, a scientific gathering.
We say this because the point of the Grand Challenges program is to promote innovation that breaks through old notions of what is achievable.
That is why the Gates Foundation is not just co-hosting the Grand Challenges meeting in Berlin (with our partners) but just opened a new permanent office there.
When Grand Challenges started, we and our partners knew we were making exciting grants to brilliant scientists.
