Event description
Conference on Science & Policy for a Sustainable Future: Insights for Environment, Technology, and Medicine

About this Event

The Cambridge Science and Policy Forum is an annual event organized by the Cambridge University Science and Policy Exchange Society (CUSPE). This year’s event consists of keynotes, panel discussions, and Horizon scanning presentations on a variety of science policy topics related to sustainability.

If you are interested in how scientific research impacts policy, or how as a scientist you can become involved in policy then this is the event for you. Whether you are a hardcore scientist wanting to learn more about the world of policy making, or someone who is considering a career move outside of the lab, then come along and find out more!

The event is intended to encourage debate and interaction between both policy makers and academics, and to help facilitate cooperation between the two sides to create evidenced based policies. We will be debating environmental and sustainability challenges in science and science policy and hear from speakers from academia, policy and beyond.

Speakers of the 2020 Forum include:

  • Professor Chris Whitty - Chief Medical Adviser to the UK Government
  • Dr Emily Shuckburgh – Leader of the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training on the Application of AI to the study of Environmental Risks (AI4ER)
  • Professor Mark Burgman - Director of the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College London
  • Andrew Millar - Chief Scientific Adviser to Scottish Government
  • Professor Colin Talbot – Former adviser to UK Parliamentary Committees
  • Dr Stuart Rogers - Director of Environment and Ecosystem science at CEFAS

This year, there will also be an opportunity for you to get involved in our Horizon 2030 session which is based on the Horizon Scanning exercises of the Government Office for Science. If you are interested in identifying a key trend in your field, predict implications a decade into the future and present the outcomes to a policy maker you can find further information here:
