The daily pressures of life edge us all towards thinking mainly about getting through the week.Great
leaps in human advancement come when minds are slow down and think connectively, abstractly about longer
term possibilities.GLF provides practical structures and programs that help individualsunderstand
and activate their full research and teaching potential.
GLF is a think tank working within the context of academic entrepreneurialism.Its founding principle is that
whilst most science is a result of steady incremental progress, great leaps forward in scientific endeavour
come from people with a set of mind allowing long-term thinking and innovation. Its aim is to catalyse
academic curiosity, independent thinking, intellectual flexibility, resilience and personal drive amongst
high functioning and high potential professionals.
A key defining reality of human existence on Earth is the growing importance of public and personal health;
population growth is a relentless phenomenon and for many across the planet, healthcare is poorly developed.
GLF supports academics and researchers to take their place as health innovators in the quest to find
sustainable local and global health solutions.
