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.
The Oxford Trust runs programmes running across three key objectives – the 3Es:
- 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.
Our Education and Engagement programmes are run by our public-facing brand Science Oxford. Our Enterprise programmes are run by the Trust.

The Trust strives to place science and entrepreneurship at the heart of culture in our region.
Every great story starts with a great idea and the story of the Oxford Trust is no exception.
The Trust is run as a not-for-profit charity with a sustainability model that supports its growth.
