News during December 2011
In December, CSaP and the Engineering Department at the University of Cambridge co-hosted a Professional Development Policy Seminar for early-career engineers. Co-sponsored by the IET, 32 researchers from 7 universities heard from engineering experts and policy professionals on the opportunities and realities of engaging with policy. For Marcus Pelenu, a PhD student at the Centre for Sustainable Development, Department of Engineering, this seminar resulted in a work placement in the Cabinet Office.
The seventh lecture in CSaP’s distinguished lecture series was given by Lord Rees of Ludlow, Master of Trinity College, Astronomer Royal and former President of the Royal Society (2005-2010).
