The Grand challenges for Systems Engineering Research are about looking into complex systems their emergence, organisation and behaviour and the utilisation of tools including modelling and visualisation to understand their complexity, document their evolution and access the relevant information about them.  Establishing a set of indicative grand challenges for systems engineering has the objective of inspiring a research agenda and bridge the gap that exist between academic knowledge and industrial applications. In order to do this a thoughtful exploration on the features of complex systems and the approaches that are followed to understand them is initiated through a series of easily recognisable grand challenges. Their achievement is regarded as a major milestone or breakthrough in the advancement of knowledge or technology. With this mindset Systems-NET is organising Annual Systems Research Grand Challenges Workshops - These are cross-sector workshops to identify the key research grand challenges for the systems engineering community.
