The Millennium Project

The Millennium Project essentially began with the Actions 1 and 2, launched in 2005 and 2007 respectively. Since then a more systematic and comprehensive framework has been constructed.

There are three principal divisions:

  1. Grand engineering challenges and solutions (focusing on sustainability and cancer)
  2. Redefining the knowledge-based economy: the learning-based economy (LBE) (adult technical literacy; infant learning; graduate education; understanding innovation)
  3. Implementation (including research quality assessment).

The Infant Learning Task Group (ILTG) has initiated a series of folk tales from different lands, and a series of Aesopic fables, with other projects in the pipeline.

The Millennium Project is organized directly by the President's Office, to which enquiries should be directed (e-mail: Proposals to join or otherwise contribute to the Project are greatly welcomed.
