Centre for Science and Policy

Through its many activities, the Centre for Science and Policy helps promote engagement between its network members: policy professionals, experts in the sciences and engineering, business leaders, early career researchers and others who have an interest in the relationship between science and policy.

CSaP and Cambridge Big Data are currently running a Policy Challenge. This workshop series brings together senior figures from research and policy to discuss the key challenges and opportunities for using Big Data to develop and deliver policy. The first workshop took place in December 2014, with further workshops planned during 2015.

About us

The Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative brings together researchers from across the University to address challenges presented by our access to unprecedented volumes of data. Our research spans all six Schools of the University, from the underlying fundamentals in mathematics and computer science, to applications ranging from astronomy and bioinformatics, to medicine, social science and the humanities

In parallel, our research addresses important issues around law, ethics and economics, in order to apply Big Data to solve challenging problems for society.

Cambridge Big Data supports collaboration and knowledge transfer in this growing field.
