The University of Cambridge
The University of Cambridge aims to contribute to society through the pursuit, dissemination and application of knowledge at the highest international levels of excellence. Over 100 academic departments, organised into six Schools, form part of the University, as well as 31 constituent Colleges. The University has around 20,000 students and 8,000 academic staff, and is closely linked to the high-tech business cluster in the Cambridge area.
Centre for Science and Policy
The Centre for Science and Policy was set up in 2009 at the University of Cambridge, to improve public policy through the more effective use of evidence and expertise. We do this by creating opportunities for public policy professionals and academics to learn from each other. We convene our network to provide fresh perspectives and critical challenges to conventional thinking. Through our workshops, Fellowships and research programme, we have pioneered new ways of bringing academia and public policy together.
