Engineering Academy Seeks Grand Challenges
The Academy and the committee are asking for community input, which can be given at the Grand Challenge web site, www.engineeringchallenges.org. According to Wulf, those nominating grand challenges should consider particularly the areas of their expertise, and include pertinent back-up materials.
Among the other committee members are former NIH Director Bernadine Healy, “Applied Minds” Chairman and former Disney Imagineer Danny Hillis, Google co-founder Larry Page, APS Fellow and Princeton professor Robert Socolow, and human genome sequencer J. Craig Venter.
