Cambridge University Science and Policy Exchange (CUSPE)

As Government spending becomes increasingly restricted the science budget is stretched to its capacity.   In these difficult economic times how should we spend our limited resources?

This event aims to explore the different aspects of science funding and how we quantify success; is it the aim of science funding to produce new economic value or to inspire the next generation of scientists?

Speakers include:


  • Prof David Delpy, Chief Executive of the EPSRC
  • Prof Athene Donald DBE FRS, Professor of Experimental Physics at University of Cambridge
  • Prof Richard Wiseman, Professor of Public Understanding at University of Hertfordshire
  • Prof David Cardwell, Professor of Superconducting Engineering at University of Cambridge

Welcome to the Graduate School of Life Sciences

We are the largest centre for research and professional training in the Life Sciences in the UK, offering a very special experience to a community of around 2000 graduate students across departments within the School of the Biological Sciences, School of Clinical Medicine and eleven University Partner Institutes in the Cambridge area.

Every year some of the world's brightest and most determined students are attracted by the opportunity to carry out research projects with renowned scientists in a vibrant, multidisciplinary environment at one of the world's most respected research-led universities.

The School co-ordinates funding opportunities within the Life Sciences for their postgraduate education, as well as ensuring students receive the highest quality supervision and training.
