Cambridge University Student Pugwash (CUSP) encourages people to examine the ethical, social and global implications of science and technology and promotes social reponsibility in science and technology. Put simply, CUSP is interested in the ways in which science and technology can be a force for good in the world.

The Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs is a world-wide network of scientists that aims to raise awareness of the ethical issues that science must confront. It was set up in the 1950s by some of the most prominent scientists of their day, many of whom were involved in the American Atom Bomb project. They were bound together by the Russell-Einstein Manifesto, but the group is still very active today. In 1995 Joseph Rotblat (Co-founder of Pugwash) and Pugwash received the Nobel Peace Prize in equal parts for their efforts to diminish the part played by nuclear arms in international politics and, in the longer run, to eliminate such arms.
