Several visits are arranged each year to organisations in and around Cambridge who have an international reputation for the application of research. Upcoming visits include:
Dates for these visits are being finalised. Once the dates are announced, places on a visit should be booked in advance by contacting John Grieve, Visits Organiser.
You must be either a member of CSAR or a registered attender to come on a visit and on most occasions, you will need to provide your own transport. There is a charge of £10 per person to cover costs.
The first visit of this season was to Encocam, to see their crash test dummy development and test laboratory.
Visits last season included a trip to NIAB's MacLeod Complex and G’s Growers Cooperative - audience feedback showed that the day was a big success:
‘Bill Clark [at NIAB] was superb - an exemplar of clarity - with a command of his subject at every level which was most impressive, combined with a natural warmth in delivery that couldn't fail to charm.'
'Two super chaps [at G's] showed us the intricacies of lettuce production and made it absolutely fascinating. The minibus made traveling around feasible, and it was valuable to see the planters and pickers first hand, rather than in a photo in a slide pack.’
‘Excellent visit, very well organised.’
