The ReDefine Next 100 program brings together selected students from diverse fields including (but not limited to) humanities, social sciences, engineering, medicine, computing science, art and the natural sciences. In international teams, 40 top young leaders identify the issue they perceive to be the paramount global challenge in the future. This diverse team incorporates innovative ideas from various respective fields and proposes a way to address this challenge. Up to ten teams will be invited to Prague for a five day-long workshop, where they perfect their work to a final proposal with high-level mentors. The top teams, as selected by a panel of experts, will be invited to present their ideas at The Next 100 Symposium.
