University of Cambridge
The University of Cambridge is one of the world’s top ten leading universities, with a rich history of radical thinking dating back to 1209.
Its mission is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence.
Cambridge research spans almost every discipline, from science, technology, engineering and medicine through to the arts, humanities and social sciences, with multi-disciplinary teams working to address major global challenges. Through institutes and initiatives such as Cambridge Zero, the Whittle Lab, Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, and Centre for Science and Policy, it is applying blue-sky, inter-disciplinary thinking and cutting-edge technologies to the global climate emergency and helping shape the political, policy and business response. It is a key partner in the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, where academia, industry, research and the NHS collaborate to tackle some of the significant healthcare challenges facing the world today.
The university is at the heart of Europe’s most successful innovation ecosystem, supporting the development of new technologies, businesses and social enterprises: the Cambridge Cluster is home to more than 5,300 knowledge-intensive firms, employs more than 67,000 people and generates more than £18bn in turnover.
