By boldly stating a list of fourteen specific Grand Challenges for Engineering, the influential National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has, in effect, set the stage for shaping the next round of major scientific and technological initiatives. In an open electronic publication (Perry et al. 2008), and on a special web site (http://www. engineeringchallenges.org), the authors eloquently describe their rationale for selecting the Grand Challenges. Importantly, these challenges were formulated based… CONTINUE READING
