Cambridge Gravity, established in 2017, is an organization that promotes transformational science. For centuries great scientists have gravitated to Cambridge and today the city is beacon of academic and industrial innovation. The mission of Cambridge Gravity is to fuel the science of the future and to nurture the interaction between scientific communities.

Cambridge Gravity has Cambridge University luminaries as Patrons and eminent Cambridge scientists as Scientific Supporters. Its mission is delivered by Friends of Gravity, who donate their time or financial support to world-leading, forward thinking science. Gravity also provides a forum for inspiration through a public lectures and award, it fosters the communication between the scientific communities and collaborates with the University Development Office and Cambridge in America to showcase University research and aspirations.
