As part of our 20th anniversary programmes we’re exploring the areas of research and innovation happening now that will have the biggest impact on society by 2048 when the Academy celebrates its 50th birthday.
We’re holding workshops across the UK to bring together future thinkers from all backgrounds with our Fellows and grant awardees , the UKs leading biomedical and health researchers, to explore a shared vision of the future.
To enlighten our disucssions we are looking for:
Movers and shakers and knowledge innovators. Discipline connectors and future world projectors. System disruptors and status quo corrupters. Strategic outward facers and idea generators.
Horizon scanners, social planners, makers and creators and idea propagators.
Social commentators, creative risk takers, agile agitators and expressive story makers.
Revolutionary leaders and new idea believers. Precision problem solvers and diversity involvers. Corporate rebel spark-ers and up the right tree barkers.
Fearless non blinkers and experimental thinkers!
