Cambridge on call

Timely expertise in support of policy responses to the Covid-19 pandemic

The Centre for Science and Policy is piloting a programme with our partners in Cambridge to support CSaP Policy Fellows as they respond to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Drawing on expertise from across the University of Cambridge and the Cambridge Cluster of biomedical and tech companies, CSaP is piloting a programme that will provide support on the medium- and long-term policy responses to the current crisis.

The programme will offer a rapid response serivce, addressing questions put forward by selected Policy Fellows and connecting them to world-leading experts covering a wide range of disciplinary perspectives.
