It is no accident that the University of Oxford ranked first in the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings reflecting its all-round strength in teaching, research and general impact. One of the major performance indicators that secured the top place is Industry Income where knowledge-transfer activities and industry engagement were demonstrated brilliantly, with Oxford University Innovation, the tech-transfer office, being at the heart of its success.
With 21 spin-outs and £22.2Million total revenue in 2016, OUI proved 1st class in helping University staff and students realise the benefits of their research and expertise to create impact in wider society. To know more about OUI and how it can support you as a student, researcher, or clinician in commercialising your research, join us on 26th April at 18:00 at Lecture Theatre 1, the Academic Centre, Level 3, John Radcliffe for an interactive meeting where Fred Kemp and Carolyn Porter of OUI will unveil the painstaking process of bringing ideas to life and Prof Zhong You and Brian Howlett, from Oxford Endovascular, will showcase their personal and successful Oxford spin-out journey.
