Advanced Oxford is a group of senior leaders from the area’s major knowledge-intensive businesses who are working together to support the long-term development of the Oxford region as a dynamic and prosperous place to work and live.
Our members span the full breadth of the innovation spectrum from biotech and computer science to advanced engineering, space, publishing, telecoms and software. As leaders of some of the UK’s most successful companies, we understand that success is built on the shoulders of a skilled and valued workforce and we understand that support and collaboration are vital to innovation.
Our membership also includes organisations whose commitment to supporting enterprise is at the heart of their vision and strategy.
Our purpose is to be the united voice of high-tech industry in the Oxford region; to draw on the collective experience of working in knowledge-intensive businesses to become a constructive contributor to the development of plans for, and investment in, our area.
We are evidence-led. We undertake research across a range of key themes relevant to the Oxford region (such as transport, housing, research infrastructure) and develop evidence that is valued by policymakers, that informs and supports the policy development process and ultimately benefits our people and communities.
We are united by a long-term commitment to the Oxford region. We are inclusive in our desire to work across regional boundaries, with organisations in the public, private and third sectors, and to contribute to plans and policies that will ensure the region’s continued vitality.
Advanced Oxford welcomes Sarah Haywood as its first Managing Director. If you would like to get in touch with Sarah, please e mail her on email@example.com.
