Business Development and Partnering

Partnering with industry 

Welcome to the office for Business Development and Partnering. Our team supports the establishment and long-term sustainability of strategic research alliances between industry and academia.

Our focused remit allows us to provide the necessary resources to develop, deliver and support long-term partnerships and we have been instrumental in setting up a number of strategic partnerships and in building relationships with SMEs. We also manage a number of industry supported fellowship schemes, run focused networking and matchmaking events, host an Experts in Residence schemes and help implement the Universities MRC:Proximity to Discovery award.

We work closely with partners across the University including our technology transfer office Oxford University Innovation and our contracts teams in Research Services.

You can find out more about our services and activities on these pages but please come and speak to our team to find out more about how we can help you.

FOR UNIVERSITY STAFF

Through our growing network of external contacts our team can work with you to identify the ideal industrial partner for your research. We can offer a wide range of support for your collaborative research, from simply facilitating the right introductions through to ongoing post-agreement support to ensure longevity and efficiency in your partnership.  

FOR EXTERNAL PARTNERS

We can work with you to understand your research focus and aims in working with Oxford to facilitate introduction to the appropriate academic group. We can liaise with all relevant internal departments to offer a single point of contact during early discussion through to contractual negotiations. Finally we also provide ongoing management and administration support to larger, long term strategic alliances.
