Our programmes

The Trust’s mission is to encourage the pursuit of science and enterprise and we run activities across three connected programmes to support this – enterprise, education and engagement. While the Trust focuses on the enterprise strategy, our education and engagement programmes are delivered through our Science Oxford team. These are some of our current programmes and initiatives.

Enterprise

The Trust’s enterprise programmes support local science and tech start-ups and spin-outs through our innovation centres as well as supporting projects that put enterprise at the heart of our region.

Our innovation centres

We own the Oxford Centre for Innovation in central Oxford and the Wood Centre for Innovation in Headington.
