Launched in July 2020, Wolfson College's interdisciplinary research hubs are the catalyst to bring together our international Fellows, students, and other partners from differing disciplines to better progress the pressing problems in our world today.
Global Challenges require multidisciplinary solutions, the coming together of creative people with different skills and perspectives. Wolfson is a community of just such creative people - scholars from many academic disciplines, with curiosity about the world around them and the determination to change it for the better.
The College is developing interdisciplinary research hubs in areas where Fellows, students and alumni have particular interest and expertise. These hubs will be the catalyst to engage their large global networks of collaborators and other partners from different disciplines.
We are providing an environment (both physical and intellectual) where challenging problems are discussed, where dialogue is encouraged, and where novel solutions are envisaged and developed.
