The Oxford Trust
Encouraging the pursuit of science and enterprise
The Oxford Trust owns the Oxford Centre for Innovation in the city centre and the Wood Centre for Innovation in Headington to provide cost-effective office space, technical workshops and R&D labs, co-working space and meeting facilities and sector-specific business support for local science and tech start-ups and grow-on businesses.

Education & Engagement
Our public-facing Science Oxford team runs our education and engagement programmes, including the Science Oxford Centre to inspire and engage young people in science and tech. The Centre is the UK’s first indoor-outdoor science education centre for primary-aged children and is open to schools during the week and for Family Days every Saturday.

We are reliant on the generosity of individuals, business and foundations that like what we do – inspire young people to become passionate about science and support the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. You can help us in several ways.
