The Trust strives to place science and entrepreneurship at the heart of culture in our region so that everyone, irrespective of age or background, can develop their scientific and technological knowledge and understanding. Over the past thirty five years the Trust, in partnership with a wide range of like-minded organisations, has built a supportive bridge between academia and business, created outstanding education programmes and enthused people of all ages about science and technology. It has also helped build the foundations of the successful science economy we see in Oxfordshire today. These are some of our current programmes and initiatives.
