Advanced Oxford is evidence-led. Our reports and research provide insight, analysis and a united voice for our members on the key issues affecting the development of the innovation ecosystem in the Oxford region. We generate and commission our own research and use this to support and inform key stakeholders involved in the development of the business environment, infrastructure and policy. You will find Advanced Oxford reports and other relevant publications and resources below.
Covid 19 is already having an unprecedented effect on society, our economy and our way of life. Government at both regional and national level needs to understand the impact that the epidemic is having on the business community. Advanced Oxford has been collecting data from companies that can be used by policy makers during the epidemic, and that can help to inform decision making as we move forward. The results from the first set of responses have been analysed and you can read the results and the conclusions in the “Our Reports” section below. Our latest research questioned investors about their intentions in light of Covid-19 and specifically looks at the likely impact on early-stage (pre-series A) companies. Our analysis and findings can be accessed in the section below.
We are still collecting data, so please contribute by completing this short questionnaire. We are asking companies to submit data at different time points, so that we can collect longitudinal data on the impact on innovation based businesses. At this difficult and challenging time, we thank you for your contributions. Stay safe and well.
