"I found the time I spent with CSaP immensely valuable. It gave me the opportunity to gain in-depth exposure to the University and its engagement with the wider science community. It also allowed me to gain a clearer picture of how the EU research agenda impacts on researchers at Cambridge - providing real insights that will inform my ongoing policy work." (May 2010)
