Strategic Network for Sensor Research at Cambridge University

Studying at Cambridge


For Academia

Supporting academic researchers

CamBridgeSens unites sensor researchers across Cambridge University and fosters collaboration between them. Around 350 PhD students, post-docs and academics from Cambridge University are members of CamBridgeSens. They represent around 20 departments in natural sciences, engineering, mathematics and medicine.

New to Cambridge?

Are you new to Cambridge and work in sensor related research? You can contact the Programme Manager who will add you to the CamBridgeSens email list and put you in touch with other researchers in Cambridge.

Looking for a collaborator?

Are you a sensor developer and would like to collaborate with an end user, or do you have a sensing challenge and need the newest sensor technology? CamBridgeSens members are happy to collaborate. This list of principle investigators provides a starting point for you to find the right person. Alternatively contact the Programme Manager who might be able to put you in contact with the right researcher.

Workshops, training and other events

CamBridgeSens organises and runs various workshops and meetings throughout the year, often in collaboration with other organisations from inside or outside the University. The aim of these events is to

  • provide a forum for exchanging ideas and sharing expertise
  • offer training in specific hardware or software, research skills and scientific methods
  • develop grant applications related to specific funding calls

If you believe it would be a good idea to run an event in a specific sensor related topic please get in touch with the Programme Manager .
