CSAR exists to encourage an appreciation of the application of research through lectures, visits, the CSAR PhD student awards and outreach to schools. We make time around these for conversation and interaction, providing excellent opportunities to meet people, make new friends, expand horizons, and network.

Exploring the application of research

Recent speakers include Dr Demis Hassabis, Co-founder and CEO of Google DeepMind on general artificial intelligence; the Astronomer Royal Lord Martin Rees on the world in 2050; Dr Hannah Fry on the influence of algorithmic decision-making on society; Professor Edward Bullmore on the links between inflammation and depression; and Dr. Giles Yeo on truths and fallacies surrounding diets and obesity.

Recent visits included the Cavendish Laboratory’s Maxwell Centre to see inside one of the world’s leading physics research laboratories and its Centre dedicated to industrial and societal applications; TWI to see world-leading materials joining and engineering processes as applied in industry; and Cambridge University’s Faculty of Education Research Centres and University Primary School to see recent advances in education.

Members are a broad mix of people, from students and researchers to entrepreneurs and business professionals, from those still at school to those already retired – all from a wide range of backgrounds. We welcome new members to our lectures and other events, and you can apply to join CSAR online. If you’d like to try a lecture or two before you join please select ‘Pay-As-You-Go’ registration.

Donations to the charity allow us to subsidise attendance by students, school students and teachers.
