CSaP's Visiting Research Fellows make a significant contribution to understanding how evidence, expertise and public policy interact, and how research expertise can contribute to better policy making – addressing the greatest policy challenges from climate change to cyber-security, poverty to pandemics, food technologies to fracking.

During their visit, Research Fellows meet with members of CSaP's extensive network of UK and EU policy makers and develop fruitful research links with Cambridge academics, looking at the policy implications of their work.
