Our innovation community
Businesses that join us also become part of a thriving community of like-minded science and tech start-ups (see interviews with some of our businesses below) with events, networking and collaboration opportunities.
Set up by entrepreneurs Sir Martin and Lady Audrey Wood, the Trust has been running innovation centres in Oxford for 35 plus years. Our first innovation centre on Osney Mead was the first in the region and, in fact, the UK, and a catalyst for Oxfordshire’s ecosystem of innovation incubators and science parks that we see today. We have seen many businesses – like Navenio, Perspectum, Mirada Medical and, more recently, Ultromics – flourish under our roof and we hope to see many more expand and grow.
