Working together to safeguard humanity
We are an interdisciplinary research centre within the University of Cambridge who study existential risks, develop collaborative strategies to reduce them, and foster a global community of academics, technologists and policy-makers working to safeguard humanity. Our research focuses on biological risks, environmental risks, risks from artificial intelligence, and how to manage extreme technological risk in general.

Now is an important time for efforts to reduce existential risk. This is the first century in which one species holds the future of the planet in its hands – us. Will we be able to reap the benefits of technology or will the human story end with us?
Partner with us to safeguard humanity’s potential.
