About The Oxford Trust
The Oxford Trust is an independent charitable trust that was established in 1985 by Oxford entrepreneurs the late Sir Martin Wood and Lady Audrey Wood, founders of Oxford Instruments. The Trust’s mission is to encourage the pursuit of science. To do this, The Oxford Trust runs programmes running across three key objectives:
Innovation – to support the innovation ecosystem in our region.
Education – to inspire young people about science, technology, engineering and maths.
Engagement – to engage public audiences with science as an important part of our culture.
Our Education and Engagement programmes are run by our public-facing brand Science Oxford. Our Innovation programmes are run by the Trust.
The Trust strives to place science 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.
