The United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals ( SDGs or Global Goals) are a powerful tool for research groups to demonstrate the global impact of their work. However, many researchers do not yet understand the SDGs framework. Using the SDGs to bring your whole team together on one page can be a great motivator and team pages help to explain the wider context of all your work.

Your research team is probably helping us achieve the UN 2030 SDGs but do all your colleagues understand the full SDGs impact of their work? How many goals does your work contribute to . . . and which ones? These are all questions The Global Academy can help you to answer.

How are research group pages put together?

Global Academy research team pages begin with an SDGs game workshop. This is a fun, engaging simulation event to bring everyone up-to-speed on the SDGs framework and how it can shape our world from here to 2030. The workshop can be online or in-person and uses a card-based simulation to create a direct experience of our future world. This always leads to a unique set of discoveries, discussions and questions to kick-start work on your team’s Global Academy page. 

After the workshop your team will all be invited and supported to create their own ‘Researcher’ pages at  Our page builder works through a straightforward process to identify where research works fits into the SDGs framework of targets and goals. We know, anecdotally, that this process impacts future research decisions as well as current thinking, and reinforces understanding of the SDGs framework

Then we will build your team page to include everyone on your team and information about your group, adding further details collected through your workshop. The page can be tailored towards the dissemination requirements of specific research funders as well as search engine visibility.
