Cambridge University Science and Policy Exchange (CUSPE) is a student-run society founded in 2012 by PhD students and post docs at the University of Cambridge. The society will build on the success of the CONNECTIONS lecture series, which brings prominent speakers to the University to discuss current topics in the sciences which intersect with key policy issues.

CUSPE ’s mission is to build stronger links between early-career researchers at Cambridge and government policy officials, both within the UK and the European Union. The society strives to support young researchers who want to influence policy from an innovative research perspective as well as those who wish to pursue careers in government. CUSPE also encourages effective communication amongst researchers, scientists, engineers, industry representatives and policymakers as well as networking and career development opportunities.
