CamBridgeSens, is a large scale, EPSRC funded, network in the University of Cambridge aimed at uniting researchers working on all aspects of sensor design and application. Pooling expertise and infrastructure across the University will catalyse sensor innovation and put the University to the forefront in this exciting field. The initiative is funded under the EPSRC "bridging the gaps" initiative and led by Clemens Kaminski and Lisa Hall, and is co-ordinated by Dr. Mica Green, who joined this department in July 2008.

CamBridgeSens is rapidly gaining momentum. There is money to sponsor workshops, facilitate discipline-hopping secondments, and for seed grants to explore ideas in interdisciplinary collaborations. Students are at the focus of the initiative, and CBS they will enable them to connect efficiently to the vast expertise and infrastructure the University has to offer. The first of monthly networking events was held on Wednesday, the 24th of September with a drinks reception at the Revolution bar, which was enthusiastically attended by students and academic staff coming from a wide range of departments and disciplines.

The project's official Launch Event will be held 28th October at Queens' College. The event will feature poster sessions, and a host of key speakers from various areas of sensor research, to illustrate the breadth and depth of sensor related science ongoing in Cambridge. There will be plenty of opportunities for networking and lots of good food and wine.
