CUSPE, the Cambridge University Science and Policy Exchange, is an organisation run by – and for – early career researchers. Our aim is to build stronger links between our members and government policy makers.

Found in 2012, the society strives to support young scientists who wish either to influence policy from within the research environment, or to pursue directly a career with the governments of the UK or European Union. CUSPE attracts academics from a wide array of disciplines, all of whom have a desire to understand how their own research, or science more generally, fits within a broader policy context.


Throughout the academic year, CUSPE runs a wide variety of workshops, lectures, and our flgship event: the Science and Policy Forum.
