About The Oxford Trust

The Oxford Trust is an independent charitable trust that was established in 1985 by Oxford entrepreneurs Sir Martin and Audrey, Lady Wood, founders of Oxford Instruments. The Trust’s mission is to encourage and facilitate the study, application and communication of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Enterprise – To support economic growth by encouraging innovation.

Education – To inspire young people about science, technology, engineering and maths.

Engagement – To encourage people of all ages to engage with how scientific research impacts their lives.
