The programme at 2015 again featured the three main streams: Funding, Learning and Innovation.


The Innovation Stream was represented by the four key stages of business: Birth, Childhood, Adolescence and Adult. Each of these four stages were showcased in half a day of presentations and workshops, focused on what a business really needs to know at that particular stage. These sessions were be led by the Network Navigators from Oxfordshire’s key clusters: Advanced Engineering, Cryogenics, Digital, Life Science, Low Carbon and Space.


There were three keynote sessions, the opening session at 0900, lunchtime keynote at 1245 and the closing keynote and panel debate at 1645, all in the Nelson Mandela Lecture Theatre.


The lunchtime keynote was at 1245 – 1330: From White Board to White Coats & Waves,
