APLU’s Sarah Rovito spoke on a panel on Why & How Universities Should Take on Moonshots at SXSW EDU in Austin, Texas. Rovito joined colleagues from the University of Texas at Austin Bridging Barriers, UCLA Grand Challenges, and Schmidt Futures to share how university-led Grand Challenge, or “moonshot” initiatives, are capable of solving societal problems and conveying the value of research to the public. An audio recording of the panel is available here.
