CUSPE’s annual forum is here!

CUSPE is delighted to announce the details of our annual conference,
The Cambridge Science Science and Policy Forum,
which will focus on all things data.

The afternoon will be split into two halves:

First, we will consider the question: ‘How should big data be regulated?’. Dr Jeni Tennison, founder of Connected By Data and former CEO of the Open Data Institute, will give a keynote talk, which will be followed by a panel discussion. Panelists will include Professor David Leslie, Director of Ethics and Responsible Innovation Research at the Alan Turing Institute, and Michael Birtwistle, Associate Director of AI and data law at the Ada Lovelace Institute.

We will then go on to discuss: ‘How can data be used to create better policy?’. The keynote speaker for this question will be Professor Diane Coyle, Bennett Professor of Public Policy and co-director of the Bennett Institute for Public Policy, and our panelists will include Professor Sir Ian Diamond, National Statistician for the United Kingdom.

Refreshments will be provided throughout the afternoon and attendees are encouraged to stay for a drinks reception and networking afterwards.

Registration is free.

Date: Tuesday 2nd May

Location: Queen’s College

Time: 14:00-18:00

CSaP Internship Opportunities

Policy Internships

The Centre for Science and Policy is looking to recruit two policy interns for three months starting in March/April 2023. CSaP offers policy internships to PhD students who would like to gain experience and learn more about the relationship between research, evidence and policy making.

Internships are for three months full time and offer students a unique career development opportunity, giving them the necessary skills and confidence to work outside their own area of expertise, and as part of a team.

Our interns organise and take part in policy workshops, write and edit policy reports for non-expert audiences, produce news articles for our website, and meet with our Policy Fellows. At the end of the internship, students will have gained a better understanding of the role of science and evidence in policy making, and the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to solving problems in health, climate, food security and much more.

If you are interested in an internship at CSaP during the Easter Term 2023, please email Jackie Ouchikh, CSaP Head of Programmes. More information can be found on our website here:

Please note: CSaP does not fund internships and can only take on interns who are fully funded and have approval from their supervisor.
