Advanced Oxford will undertake research across six key priority areas relevant to the Oxford region.
Skills and education
Advanced Oxford will work with key educational partners to find ways to support our young people to have the aspiration, skills and opportunities to pursue a career in science and tech within the region. We also want to ensure that we build the right networks, collaborations and partnerships so that we can attract and retain the best people to work within our innovation sector.
Through research, Advanced Oxford will build a picture of the long-term housing needs and wants of people working in our region’s growing innovation economy and communicate these to the planners and policy-makers who can orchestrate change and development.
Our region’s leading-edge status needs to be supported by an effective transport system for the Oxford region. Advanced Oxford will contribute to the debate around transport and accessibility, with progressive ideas and solutions that address the needs of our communities, people and commuters as well as our knowledge-intensive businesses.
Advanced Oxford will support Oxfordshire’s local authorities and public bodies in their development of policy and plans by providing a clear, cogent and dispassionate voice, reflecting the needs of the people who work for the region’s knowledge-intensive businesses.
Quality of life
Advanced Oxford will work with relevant organisations to express the need for growth and development to be balanced against the equally important need for green spaces, fresh air and cultural enrichment in our region
Research infrastructure and commercial space
Advanced Oxford will seek continued support for the elements that underpin the region’s scientific assets: a world class research base and suitable spaces for all knowledge-intensive businesses, whether they are a small start-up or a global corporation.
