These events will provide a networking opportunity to meet like-minded people with an interest in entrepreneurship and is open to academics, postdocs and PhDs alike from across all departments at the University.

On 11 October, hear Simon Pellew, OBE, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at ICthinking, talk about the research that spun out of the Department of Psychology, the relationship with Cambridge Enterprise and the educational programmes that they are now able to provide which are quite literally changing the world.

Called ICthinking, the programme was developed by Savage with Dr Jose Liht and Dr Eolene Boyd-MacMillan.

The ‘IC’ stands for Integrated Complexity—and refers to both the style of thinking people use when facing difference and disagreement, and a way of measuring it, based on over 40 years of research by Professor Peter Suedfeld and his colleagues.
