The “Industry Experts in Residence” programme is managed by the Business Development Office and Oxford University Innovation. It aims to give Oxford's research community access to world-leading expertise and advice across multiple industry sectors. Scientists can arrange meetings with our experts to discuss their ideas and projects with no strings attached. We expect that this advice and support will help scientists develop the translational strategy for their projects/technologies. In addition, these experts give seminars and workshops aimed at early career scientists and graduate students, which aim to improve understanding of the realities of technological development and commercialisation. For more information explore these pages, or contact a member of our team.
