Inspired by the University of Cambridge as a centre of innovation for more than 800 years, this edition – titled Innovation 800 – showcases innovative thinking at Cambridge and farther afield. The publication covers subjects that range from the philosopher Erasmus to Monty Python, and looks into the University of Cambridge’s Education Under Supervision tutorial system that encourages students to think for themselves. It also looks at the rise of Silicon Fen which is Cambridge’s equivalent to Silicon Valley. In addition, Innovation 800 identifies innovators in education as well as suitable professional opportunities, and discusses some of the most pressing issues in education and employment today. In doing so, the project provides students with practical information for their future endeavours.

Innovation 800 will be delivered through a campaign that will connect students, innovators, educators, recruiters and the wider world of business. Featuring contributions from industry pioneers and commentators, it includes informative features, engaging insights and expert advice, all written to the highest of standards. By promoting Innovation 800 across two academic years, we optimise the project’s exposure to the University’s students and to the wider world. To recap the audience for this project, CUSU represents more than 22,000 undergraduates and postgraduates at the University of Cambridge, providing them with high-quality services and support, and campaigning on their behalf.
