World problem solver

Scientists are humanity’s frontline. Wherever answers are needed they lead the charge - overcoming complex global challenges, solving real-world problems and developing solutions for the future.

Incredibly, science is predicted to bring more human progress in the next 50 years than the previous 400 combined.

Fighting climate change… saving lives… sustaining the environment… ending hunger… colonising Mars... However you want to make a difference, science holds the key. And the University of Adelaide can put it in your hands.
