The “Experts in Residence” scheme is managed by the Translational Research Office, the Business Partnerships 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.

View a brochure detailing the structure of the program, key stakeholders, testimonials, and a directory for researchers to learn more about the experts.
