The Oxford Trust COVID-19 update

In this ever-changing situation around COVID-19, we hope that you are healthy and adjusting to the new world order. Like many other organisations in the UK, we are finding ways of working that will allow us to stay connected and continue the work of the Trust – to encourage the pursuit of science and enterprise.

Under the current circumstances, we have temporarily closed our Science Oxford programmes. This means our Science Oxford Centre is shut and outreach visits to schools, kit loan and CPD training as well as our STEM Careers Programme are cancelled. All our public events and clubs are also cancelled until further notice.

Like many other organisations in the UK, we are finding ways of operating from home that will allow us to stay connected and continue the work of Science Oxford. Our team is looking at how we can continue to help teachers and families to inspire young people about science, technology, engineering and maths. We are also planning for the future and developing some exciting new additions to our Science Oxford Centre programme.

Our innovation centres – the Wood Centre for Innovation and Oxford Centre for Innovation – are now closed. In association with Oxford Innovation, we are keeping in touch with all our businesses but we are also looking at different ways we can support science and tech start-ups in this difficult time.

In the meantime, we will be sharing our news on social media – see Science Oxford on Facebook and Twitter, and the Trust on Twitter – and via our newsletters.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
