The Oxford Trust

The Oxford Trust is an independent charitable trust that was founded in 1985 by entrepreneurs Sir Martin and Audrey, Lady Wood. Our mission is to encourage and facilitate the study, application and communication of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

We are a strategic organisation with complementary programmes running across three key objectives:

  • Enterprise – To support economic growth by encouraging innovation.
  • Education – To inspire young people about science, technology, engineering and maths.
  • Engagement – To encourage people of all ages to engage with how scientific research impacts their lives.

We support early-stage science and innovation companies through our Oxford Centre for Innovation facility and business support services. Later this year the Trust, which was a founding member of Venturefest, will begin work on a new science and education centre in Oxford.

Through our public-facing brand Science Oxford, we aim to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers and innovators through inventive education outreach and teacher CPD. We also engage with people of all ages about how scientific research and discoveries impacts our through interactive activities for families and informative and thought-provoking events for adults.
