Innovation 800 covers a range of subjects – from the impact of the University of Cambridge’s groundbreaking thinkers (from the philosopher Erasmus to the Monty Python team and beyond) to the university’s unique tutorial system, which helps students think for themselves. It also examines the rise and growth of Silicon Fen – Cambridge’s equivalent to Silicon Valley. Featuring contributions from industry pioneers and commentators, as well as informative features, engaging insights and expert advice for students and alumni, Innovation 800 connects students, innovators, educators, recruiters and the wider world of business. CUSU President Amatey Doku said: “As a showcase for innovation across a variety of industries and career paths, we’re thrilled to be publishing this new and valuable resource for our students.” The launch will be supported across social media via CUSU and St James’s House platforms with the hashtag #Innovation800.
