St Cross to host CRISP Programmes 2018-20


The College is delighted to announce that it will be hosting the CRISP programme from 2018-2020.

The CRISP (Chevening Rolls-Royce Science and Innovation Leadership Fellowship) Programme is aimed at mid-career professionals with high potential in the fields of science, innovation and business from India and Sri Lanka. The programme has wide-reaching academic themes including science policy and its economic impact, global challenges, innovation and entrepreneurship, leadership and management, and politics and international relations.

Since 2011, the programme has been delivered and hosted by the Saïd Business School with participants becoming visiting students at St Cross. From 2018 until 2020, St Cross College will be delivering the CRISP programme. The international and interdisciplinary nature of St Cross make it the perfect home for the programme, and participants next year will benefit from being part of the College and meeting other students on a daily basis and enjoying all that St Cross has to offer. 

2017 CRISP Scholar Amit Sharma has written a personal blog that provides a glimpse into the CRISP scholar experience, and you can read it here.
