The University of Cambridge is one of the world’s leading universities, committed to excellence in teaching and research across a broad range of disciplines.

The University’s Conservation Research Institute  has been described as the academic ‘engine room’ of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative.  It is one of the eleven Interdisciplinary Research Centres established by the University to find solutions to some of the greatest challenges facing humanity.  The Institute comprises a network of about 150 researchers drawn from all six core Schools within the University: Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences and Humanities, Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, Clinical Medicine and Technology.  It is committed to interdisciplinary collaboration, delivering an ambitious programme of research that brings the natural sciences and technology into intellectual dialogue with the arts, humanities and social sciences.  For example, many collaborative projects with conservation organisations are highlighted below.   The Institute has a core role in the MPhil in Conservation Leadership, a University of Cambridge graduate programme, delivered in collaboration with the wider CCI partners, and in the broader University-wide learning agenda in relation to sustainability.
