Industry experts and researchers will try to bridge the gap between science and business.
In this session we explore the role of science, technology, and leadership in accelerating empowerment, democratisation, and equitability in extraordinary times.

Prof Bram Govaerts (Director General at CIMMYT/CGIAR), Kristoffer Gandrup-Marino (Chief of Innovation at UNICEF) and Dr Louisa Ludbrook (Vice-President Sales at Oxford Nanopore Technologies) share their vision and expertise in a conversation on what it is like to turn innovative ideas into scalable global solutions. The focus is on innovation in the areas of food security, progress for children, and democratisation of biological research.

Oxford’s Founders & Funders is a community and digital event series that brings notable alumni and funders in conversation with researchers and executive students at the coalface of science and business; proudly supported by the Entrepreneurship Centre and Enterprising Oxford.
