Global Business Challenge Collaboration
The Global Business Challenge is a global innovation competition for graduate students from the world’s leading universities to design sustainable solutions to global problems.

The Global Business Challenge (GBC) was established in 2014 as the G20 Global Business Challenge. The GBC is managed by QUT and supported by two other leading Australian universities –The University of Queensland and Griffith University – as well as the Australian government. The GBC has been funded with seed funding of $500,000 each year for an initial seven years. Building on the success of the inaugural competition in 2014, the Global Business Challenge has quickly established itself as the world’s premier innovation competition.

For 2017 the GBC will collaborate with the 12th World Congress on Engineering Asset Management. The finalists will be announced at the Congress Gala Dinner at the Brisbane Conventions and Exhibition Centre on 3 August 2017.
