Grand Challenges In Entomology is an ongoing project of the Royal Entomological Society to develop an agenda for the future of global entomology and for the Society. It is inspired by the Entomological Society of America’s Grand Challenge Agenda for Entomology initiative.
After a membership consultation and expert workshop, eleven themes were determined to group scientfic priorities in insect science. This prioritisation exercise was led by Lynn Dicks at the University of Cambridge, to focus the Society’s global membership on the future of the entomological sector.
Outputs from this project will include scientific papers, themed meetings and awareness campaigns.
The eleven themes are:
|Taxonomy||Blue Skies||Methods and Techniques|
|Anthropogenic Impacts||Conservation Options||Ecosystem Benefits|
|Technology and Resources||Pests||Knowledge Access|
|Training and Collaboration||Society Engagement|
