Cambridge​ ​University​ ​Students’​ ​Union​ ​(CUSU),​ ​in​ ​partnership​ ​with​ ​St James’s​ ​House,​ ​is​ ​excited​ ​to​ ​announce​ ​the​ ​digital​ ​launch​ ​of​ ​​Innovation 800​.

This​ ​new​ ​publication​ ​tells​ ​the​ ​story​ ​of​ ​eight​ ​centuries​ ​of​ ​innovative thinking​ ​from​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world’s​ ​most​ ​prestigious​ ​universities.

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​.

Clanmore​ ​Montessori​ ​School​​ ​is​ ​proud​ ​to​ ​be​ ​featured​ ​in​ ​this​ ​impressive project,​ ​which​ ​tells​ ​the​ ​creative story​ ​of​ ​the​ ​University​ ​of​ ​Cambridge​ ​and will​ ​help​ ​inspire​ ​its​ ​students​ ​to​ ​be​ ​the​ ​world’s​ ​next​ ​great​ ​innovators.”
