CUSPE: Cambridge University Science and Policy Exchange
About this community
CUSPE is an organisation run by and for early career researchers that aims to build stronger links between its members and government policy-makers. Founded in 2012, the society strives to support young researchers who wish either to influence policy from within the research environment of the University or to pursue directly a career with the governments of the UK or European Union. CUSPE attracts researchers from across the academic disciplines (scientists, engineers and social scientists), all of whom have a desire to understand how their own research, or science more generally, fits within a broader policy context.
CUSPE Communications provides a platform for articles on a range of science policy issues. Submissions are open to any member affiliated with the University – undergraduate, postgraduate, visitor, or staff.
