Programmes and Initiatives

The Trust’s Enterprise programme of activities and initiatives is reflective of our core objective to support economic growth by encouraging innovation. We work with local and regional partners to develop and implement joint projects such as The Oxford Trust Enterprise Awards and The Pod. We also seek grants and partnerships from like-minded organisations  to develop innovative projects with a wider scope, such as our new regional science innovation and education centre project Stansfeld Park.
